Three gang members were convicted Monday of murder in the shooting death of a Clayton County man, officials said.

A jury found Khadijah Briana Jenkins, Frederick Marsalia Rosenau and Lavarr Rasheed Pierce guilty of killing 24-year-old Quincy Suggs at a Jonesboro home Sept. 16, 2014.

Prosecutors said Suggs was shot during a robbery. His body was found charred after the trio set the house on fire to hide the evidence of Suggs’ murder, the Clayton County District Attorney’s Office said.

Suggs had a gunshot wound to the back of the head, Battalion Chief David Vazquez told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution at the time.

Jenkins was convicted of aggravated assault, while Pierce and Rosenau were convicted of murder and aggravated assault. All three were found guilty of violating the Street Gang Act. 

Officials saidJenkins and Pierce were members of the Luxiano gang, a subset of the 9 Trey Billy Bad Ass Bloods, of which Rosenau was identified as a statewide leader.

The sentencing is scheduled at 8:30 a.m. Dec. 13.
