Police arrest third and fourth suspects in connection to fatal Macon Mall shooting

17-year-old Quentavious Moore was shot twice in the chest at the Macon Mall food court

MACON, Ga. — The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two more people in connection with the August 1 fatal shooting of 17-year-old Quentavious Moore.

He's the teen who was shot twice in the chest at the Macon Mall food court. It was reported to deputies that it started when two men got into an argument. The argument turned into a fight, and ended with one of the men shooting the other.

Moore was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Investigators had warrants issued for a 14-year-old and 39-year-old Shantelle Monique Cherry in connection with the fatal shooting after consulting with the District Attorney’s Office. 

They were both arrested Wednesday afternoon, according to a press release from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office. 

The 14-year-old was taken to the Youth Detention Center and is charged with felonies of murder and possession of a stolen firearm. He is being charged as an adult and does not have bond at this time. 

Cherry was taken to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center and is charged with the felonies of false statements and tampering with evidence. Cherry does not have bond at this time. 

Investigators had warrants issued for Ken’ya Quintae Carter’s arrest, and took him into custody Wednesday morning.

Carter was transported to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center for the charges of murder-felony and armed robbery. 

19-year-old Kowasis Moore, Quentavious' brother, was arrested Tuesday after an investigation involving the sheriff's office and District Attorney Anita Howard.

The release says they determined Quentavious Moore’s death was a murder. The people involved were reported to be fighting as they were trying to retrieve a stolen gun.

Moore was taken to the Bibb County jail and is charged with murder and armed robbery. He's being held without bond.

Carter also has several charges that are unrelated to this investigation, two counts of theft by receiving stolen property-felony, marijuana possession-less than an ounce, four counts of possession of firearm during commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies, and five counts of aggravated assault.

Carter is currently being held, without bond, at the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center.
