COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Terrance Streeter, an 18-year-old suspect charged with crimes associated with the death of 16-year-old Christopher Jones, pleaded not guilty in court Thursday morning, Aug. 28.

A detective testified that the two teenagers charged with Jones' murder—14-year-old Jaquan Harris and 15-year-old Jamal Scott—attempted to sell several handguns to Streeter. Harris had a .40 caliber gun in his lap when Streeter reached into the car, and grabbed the gun.

Streeter fired shots at Harris, Scott and Jones, and they returned fire from inside a car on Calvin Ave. No one was injured in this shootout, and Streeter made off with the stolen weapon.

Later on Jones, Harris, and Scott drove to a "Party House" on Winston Rd. where Streeter was located and opened fire on him. Streeter returned fire, and Jones was shot and killed as a result of this shootout. Shell casings from .40 caliber bullets were recovered from the scene on Winston Rd.

Streeter will not be charged with murder. According to the detective, witnesses at the scene say the teens in the car shot at Streeter first on Winston Rd., and he was protecting himself when he fired back.

Streeter was assigned a bond amount totaling $110,000. $10,000 for Possession of Firearm, $25,000 for Robbery, and $75,000 for three counts of aggravated assault.

The Judge revealed that Streeter has prior convictions, and was put on five year probation on April, 24, 2014, for theft by receiving.

The detective said they will be adding an additional charge for Felony Possession by a Convicted Felon. Streeter will be back in Recorder's Court for that additional charge.
