ATLANTA -- A 24-year-old man was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole plus 25 years in prison for a shooting that killed one victim and seriously injured another.
Jonathan Nations was found guilty Monday of murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, hijacking and weapons charges in the June 2012 incident.
According to information presented in court, the victims -- Kenyatta Moss and Bobby Swint, both 35 at the time -- were in Atlanta to pick up a friend and drive him back to their hometown of Macon.
Nations approached the victims and said that in exchange for a ride, he'd take them to a place where they could buy marijuana. The victims drove Nations to the 700 block of Reed Street in southeast Atlanta -- a dead end.
When the victims tried to leave, Nations fired four shots at them. Swint was fatally hit in the side of the face. Moss was struck in the leg and foot as he tried to run away. Surveillance cameras captured part of the shooting
