AMERICUS, GA (WTVM) - Americus Police are now calling the shooting death of 19-year old Courtney Jones a drug deal that went bad.

Six people are under arrest, including 22-year-old Cornelius Lewis. Three of the suspects are juveniles -- either 15 or 16 years old.

The charges include murder, armed robbery, and marijuana possession. We're told large amounts of the drug were found at the murder scene.

Investigators believe the men were trying to rob Jones when he was killed in a gunfight last Thursday.
