October 26, 2012 

Macon police are looking for the people responsible for a shooting late Thursday night as well as an armed robbery early Friday.

Just after 10:30 p.m. Thursday, police went to The Medical Center of Central Georgia, where they found a man who had been shot. The man told officers that a man pulled a handgun on him on Triple Hill Drive and shot him in the right arm. No other details were available.

After 3 a.m. Friday, police were back at the hospital about an armed robbery at a Flash Foods store.

The victim told police that he and others had quarreled earlier in the evening. Later, he went to a Flash Foods store on Pio Nono Avenue, where a group surrounded him and another altercation ensued.

One of the people took out a handgun and pistol-whipped the victim, while others went into his pockets and removed cash, according to a statement from police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet. The people left the scene in what is believed to be a black Grand Marquis. The case was turned over to the department’s Criminal Investigation Division.

Anyone with information in the cases is asked to call Macon police at 751-7500 or Crimestoppers at 1-877-68-CRIME.
