They had arranged a fight with another man via social media.
The four had also posted a picture to social media of all of them holding guns, which was directed toward the people they wanted to fight.
They suspect confronted those people at the bowling alley and Albert Taylor shot Kejuan Mitchell Brown, 17, in the chest, killing the teen, according to prosecutors.
Taylor was sentenced to 32 years for murder.
Jamari Fair pled guilty to Voluntary Manslaughter and Possession of a Weapon During the Commission of a Violent Crime. He was sentenced to 20 years.
