Jarvis Clinton Miller has been charged with the shooting death of Mercer senior guard Jibri Bryan, according to the Bibb County Sheriff Department. Bryan was murdered in broad daylight on Tuesday afternoon in Macon, Ga.

While Miller had been charged, the authorities said they’re seeking another suspect in the case.

The 23-year-old Bryan was shot in the head with a pistol. The authorities found him in the driver’s seat of his Monte Carlo in a parking lot of a convenience store.

Miller is the suspect, who was wounded at the scene, along with Bryan, and may have been shot by the individual, whose still at-large. The authorities thought he was cohort to a suspect as well.

The authorities have said that they believe there’s no evidence that Bryan fired at him. Miller reportedly fled the scene after the shooting, according to the police, before being found at a local hospital.

Bryan was shot in the Flash Foods convenience store and gas station in Macon, Ga. at approximately 4 pm on Tuesday while he was in his vehicle.

“There was some type of discussion or altercation that came about that resulted in gunfire,” Bibb County Sheriff David Davis told WMAZ-TV.

Miler, according to the authorities, was wounded several times, before running from the scene. An eye witness saw Miller at the scene, which led to the authorities finding him later on.

He’s still being treated at Navicent Health in Macon, while being under police guard, according to reports. At this time, it’s not clear when he’ll be released, or where he’s been shot, but is in stable condition.

Bryan was dealing with a knee injury and was limited this season. Last season; however, he started every game for the team. The most memorable game that Bryan was a part of when the Bears defeated the Duke Blue Devils in the 2014 NCAA March Madness Tournament.

“First and foremost, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Bryans. The Mercer athletic family is deeply saddened by Jibri’s passing,” Athletic Director Jim Cole said in a statement. “Jibri was always cheerful and greeted everyone in the department with a smile. He will not only be missed by his basketball family but by all of us in the University Athletic Department.”
