Cofield said Azaerion Dykazious Jones, 19, was arrested and charged with murder and a weapons charge.

Later, Cofield said that a second teen had been charged.

Nakerrius L. Pressley, also 19, was charged with obstruction of justice. "

"It is believed that he attempted to tamper, move, or destroy evidence in this case," Cofield said in an email.

SLED is also assisting in the investigation.

This was a live look at the scene Friday morning:

Saturday morning, Jones was denied bond for his murder charge in a Laurens courtroom. A judge issued a $350,000 bond for the possession of a weapon charge.

Why are these ni66ers still breathing?




They have these two posted together as if they are on the same side of this thing! WRONG!! The one on the right posted to social media Thursday night that he was going to shoot up the other ones mom's house the next day. He tagged this young man in the post which had over 100 comments & has since been removed. Friday morning before 8am he indeed followed thru with this threat & was caught ON TAPE doing so! The guy that was killed was with HIM! The other guy saw who it was & went over there...not hiding...not driving by shooting...not even in someone else's vehicle! He went in his own car, got out, unloaded on the subjects who'd moments before unloaded on his parents house where AT LEAST four minor children were & could have been killed! I don't blame him! He needs to be released! The guy that started all this has also caused ANOTHER death (his brother) a couple yrs ago, and almost cost his other brother his life after he shot up someone else's mom's house a month ago & had them believe his brother did it! It's ONE common denominator here! ONE problem & that problem is the Pressley kid! Obstruction of justice is hilarious! Charge HIM with murder! HIS actions caused this! You have to know when doing things of this magnitude to at least EXPECT the worse! For EVERY action, there are equal & just reactions!! Mr Jones should be home with the very family he was defending and protecting!


Shad has been nothing but trouble to everybody around him since forever. Kimori was the only person who tried to be there for him through everything and is now gone because of him. This is the same stupid little boy he once referred to as his brother. I understand if Jones was trying to protect his family but he killed the wrong one. He took away someone who was worth every ounce of breath in his body. He took a known outstanding person away from us. Not just friends and family. The whole area or Laurens County. He did and he must pay for that and Shad should be right along with him. Prison is too good for both of them. Prison is way more than they’ll ever deserve but if they’ve gotta go then they need to rot in there.


Two wrongs have never made a right.


Stupid looking people do stupid things. Who knew?

More street apes that need to be taken down!


While only 13% of the population in the USA is black 85% of all violent interracial crimes are committed by blacks 80% of all shootings are committed by blacks 79% of all robberies are committed by blacks... 59% of all murders are committed by blacks 52% of all violent juvenile crimes are committed by blacks 49% of all murder victims are black 45% of all drug offenses are committed by blacks 42% of all cop killers are black 8% of America’s population are black men, yet they account for 40% of America’s total prison population. 99% of all major riots involving property damage, looting and civil disobedience are committed by blacks as opposed to ANY OTHER minority in America. Blacks Commit 25X more Violent Assaults against Whites than Whites against Blacks. And the most amazing statistic of all; 33% of all crimes in America are committed by 3% of the population; blacks between the ages of 16 and 36 42% of blacks are on welfare (Dept. of Commerce) Only 59% blacks graduate high school (only 20% in Detroit) Over 60% of black households have no fathers present 72% of black mothers are unwed, 72%! All info is from DOJ, FBI and Dept of Commerce statistics. If you don’t believe them please feel free to look them up yourself.


Look, I know that your family probably hasn't visited you and that you're some old, bedridden dullard, but is this really the place? All your posts espouse low intelligence racism. I feel bad for how easily you've been conned into thinking you're superior (despite having some trouble with spelling and grammar). You're a sad soul whose only joy comes from making these sad posts. A family is grieving. They lost a black son who outclassed you in every single way. When you pass, no one will remember you. Your hate will die with you.


Facts are facts, like it or not.

the figures you posted only represent the rate within the 13% of Black/African Americans.. Therefore, your information is both inaccurate and misleading..

avtx1300c These statistics are nationwide including crime stat from the entire national population, not just blacks. Read more slowly with an open mind and you should understand. Also, you make your post where no one can reply: you afraid of being proven wrong or just blind?

Studies of the relationship between race and criminal sentencing have produced conflicting results (Walker et al.). While racial minorities tend to receive longer sentences overall compared to whites, these differences are usually explainable by factors such as prior record and seriousness of the offense. The argument has been made, however, that such indicators were themselves the result of racial discrimination on the part of the police, judges, and juries, thus leading to a greater likelihood of an African American or Hispanic defendant having a longer prior record, or that the socioeconomic position of most minorities increases the likelihood of committing an offense considered more serious by the courts. Regardless of the possible explanations, it is clear that the end result of the court process was the increasingly disproportionate incarceration of racial minorities in U.S. jails and prisons throughout the twentieth century (Irwin and Austin; Walker et al.).


13% again . one would automatically think that well this subject could have been murdered by anyone , right ? on the other hand these subjects are over the age of 18 so they are teens technically but adults legally . death penalty would be good but likely the taxpayers will have to keep them in a prison for who knows how long .
