According to Broder, McMullin and Reid were dropped off in front of a house on North 16th Street in Griffin on the evening of the shooting. They walked between houses in the residential neighborhood to Lake Avenue and fired a half-dozen shots at Draggs.
Draggs was hit in the chest and later died at the hospital, Griffin police said. Part of the shooting was captured by security cameras at a nearby business, according to Broder.
During the trial, Broder said evidence revealed that Reid and McMullin were attempting to shoot a rival gang member instead of Draggs. A motive was not provided.
“Gang violence is destroying lives, and my circuit will continue to fight hard against those who wish to commit violent crime in the name of and in furtherance of a gang,” Broder said.
Reid was convicted of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and violating the Georgia Street Gang and Terrorism Prevention Act, Broder said. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus 20 years.
McMullin was convicted of felony murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
