The Georgia authorities are still looking for the second suspect in the death of Mercer Bears basketball player Jibri Bryan. He was gunned down on Tuesday at Flash Floods convenience store.

An arrest was made on Wed., according to the Bibb County Sheriff Office. The 23-year-old was killed when he was shot in the head while sitting in the parking lot of the store.

An arrest warrant has been issued for the second suspect. However, they would not release the individual’s name.

This may be a move to keep the name out of the public instead that the suspect may flee. Sometimes, in these high-profile incidents, when the authorities go to the media, the suspects usually leave town.

Jarvis Clinton Miller, 24, was arrested as he was leaving the scene on a nearby street. He was wounded in the crime and was being treated for those gunshot wounds.

He’s expected to be transferred from the hospital, where he presently is, to the jail, according to the sheriff’s office. Miller’s going to be charged with felony murder.

At this time, there is no known motive as to why Bryan may have been targeted. However, on Thurs., the investigators said that a ‘suspicious’ bottle containing substance and cash was found near Bryan’s vehicle.

The substance is being tested to see if it’s drugs.

Bryan was a member of the Mercer Bears basketball team the past several seasons. He even gave up a scholarship to his teammate, too.

The school had a vigil for Bryan on Wed. night.

“Jibri was always cheerful and greeted everyone in the department with a smile,” Mercer Athletic Director Jim Cole said. “He will not only be missed by his basketball family, but by all of us in the University Athletic Department.”
