The murder case against a teen accused of fatally shooting a Mundy's Mill High School student will go to a grand jury.

After a preliminary hearing held Thursday for Artavious Rashad Abercrombie, 18, of College Park enough evidence was found to bound the case over to the grand jury.

Abercrombie is charged with murder in connection with the April 23 shooting death of Larry Bishop Jr., at a party in Whaley's Lake subdivision near the school. He told police that Bishop fired at him, first.

Also arrested earlier this month in connection with Bishop's shooting were 21-year-old Jonathan Antoine Scott and 19-year-old Jeremy Tavone Womack of Jonesboro, 17-year-old Dannie Lee Roberts of College Park, 18-year-old Michael Kevin Curtis Jr., of Fairburn and two juveniles whose names were not released due to their ages.

Scott, Womack and both juveniles were charged with affray. Roberts was also charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and being a person under 18 in possession of a weapon. One of the juveniles, a 16-year-old Riverdale youth, was also charged with aggravated assault and weapon possession by someone under 18.

Curtis was charged with terroristic threats.

Two men opened fire at a house party on the night of the incident, shooting four people, and killing one of them, Clayton County Police Capt. Jeff Turner said previously, adding that the killing could have been "pay-back" following a fight at Mundy's Mill High School.

A man in fatigues with an assault rifle and another man with a handgun shot Bishop, Deshawn Marcus Womack, 20, of Jonesboro, Shekidi Nesbeth, 16, of McDonough, and Lachanzny McCord, 16, of McDonough.
