A Macon teenager is under arrest in the November 2013 drive-by murder of Alyssa Jackson.

16-year-old Dontavius Mintz is charged with murder and participating in criminal street gang activity.

Alyssa Jackson was only 16 herself when she was shot in the back while standing outside her house in the 2000 block of Cedar Avenue. A 13-year-old boy was also shot and hurt.

Mintz is charged with armed robbery, false imprisonment and kidnapping in a November 18, 2013 case. Police say Mintz and a Macon man broke into a home in the Howard Oaks subdivision and took the resident to an ATM where they forced him to withdraw money.

Mintz is charged as an adult but is being held at a youth detention center.
