MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Seven more people have been arrested in the shooting death of Moultrie woman.

On Thursday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested 24-year-old Alden Roberts, Jr., 17-year-old Ja'Michael Simpson, 17-year-old Billy Rushing and 4 other juveniles in the death of Fatisha Clark.

Roberts was charged with four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and false statement and writings. Simpson, Rushing and three juveniles were charged with fighting. The other juvenile was charged with aggravated assault after pointing a gun at another juvenile before the fight, as well as fighting.

According to officials, the the seven suspects were in a fight before Clark was shot on March 6th. 

The fight broke out in the parking lot of the Ryce Community Center in Moultrie.

After the fight ended several juveniles were leaving the area in a vehicle when 16-year-old Jaquan Willis fired several shots, one of which struck Clark and she later died of her wounds.     

Willis was booked into the Colquitt County Jail Tuesday, charged with murder. 

Roberts, Simpson and Rushing were arrested at the Moultrie Police Department and taken to the Colquitt County Jail. The juveniles were released to their parents or guardians.

Investigators do not think Clark was the intended target, but they have not said why they believe Willis opened fire.

He is now being held at a regional youth detention facility.
