SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A 22-year-old woman charged with murder and aggravated assault in the shooting death of a 17-year-old boy was denied bond in her first court appearance. 

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police said Adrienne Marie Jackson was arrested at her home Thursday night. 

Police say they believe Jackson acted alone, and is the only suspect.

Evan Colquitt was shot at about 6:45 p.m. Jan. 22 in front of a house in the 400 block of Sharondale Road, where several people had gathered, including Colquitt and Jackson.

Colquitt died of several gunshot wounds. He had been taken to Memorial University Medical Center.

Police said Jackson was identified as the suspect during a two-month investigation by Criminal Investigation Division homicide detectives.

The shooting investigation continues.

Jackson's next court date is set for 2 p.m. March 20. 

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020 or text CRIMES (274637). In the body type, include "CStop2020" plus the tip. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

A confidential tipline is open directly to investigators at 912.525.3124. Callers who want to speak directly to the detectives without the possibility of a reward can arrange private discussions.
