Myrick—known by the nicknames “JayMan” and “Set Trip”—and his co-defendant, Torrus Fleetwood, reportedly approached four people outside of a wedding venue in Brookhaven, Ga. Myrick is said to have demanded the people’s belongings which included cell phones, wallets, and other items.
One of the victims, Christian Broder, followed the robbers afterward in an effort to get his driver’s license back, only to be shot in the stomach by Myrick before he and Fleetwood left the scene. Broder died a week after being robbed and shot. Jayden Myrick was 17 at the time of his initial arrest and reported that he was recruited to YSL at the age of nine.
On Thursday (Oct. 27), Myrick was found guilty of 16 counts including violation of street gang terrorism and prevention, malice murder, felony murder, armed robbery, criminal attempt to commit armed robbery, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a first offender probationer.
As a result, he was sentenced to life without parole, three consecutive life sentences, and an additional five years.
