Six men are facing murder charges after the November 24 shooting death of Alex Mixon in Albany.
According to the indictment, Jaquan Oliver, Jacquarius Oliver, Jaylen Miller, Iren Carter, Mickee Carter and Jacquavious Oliver are facing charges of malice murder, felony murder, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, violation of street gang terrorism and prevention act and forgery in the first degree.
Juquan Oliver and Jacquarius Oliver are facing a charge of possession of a handgun by a person under 18. Oliver is facing a charge of tampering with evidence by allegedly concealing a handgun.
Prosecutors allege that the men were associated with the Gangster Disciples. They say Mixon's murder was to further their involvement in that gang.
Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards say that the next step for the six men is arraignment, which is expected within 60 days.
"The State is confident that there was sufficient evidence to be indicted," Edwards said. "Number two, we believe have sufficient evidence for the matter to move forward to trial. The police department was very efficient and effective in bringing this case to light and gathering all information needed to make this case move forward."
All are facing life in prison if convicted.
