Xavier Johnson had a busy morning Friday, according to a Macon police report released this week.
The 32-year-old was hit in the head with a gun and robbed. He chased the robber, was shot at, later cursed at police, was tased and handcuffed -- all before the sun came up on his apartment complex at 3013 Ridge Ave.
Officers were called just before 4:40 a.m. Friday to a report of an armed robbery and shots fired at the Riviera Court Apartments.
About 40 minutes later, investigators learned a woman was being treated at Coliseum Northside Hospital after a bullet grazed her ear while she was driving in the 3000 block of Ridge Avenue.
Neighbors who gathered at the street to see what was going on reported hearing five gunshots -- two together, a short pause and three more.
The shooting victim, whose name was not released, told police the suspect was a black male in a white jacket who was driving a black car.
Johnson was wearing a blood-stained white jacket over a blue shirt and was standing next to his black Cadillac when officers arrived.
He was bleeding from the top of his head, which he said happened when he was hit during the robbery.
He told officers to go get them, and said the robber left in a small, gray vehicle.
When asked for more information, Johnson allegedly said, Man, Im not talking, and cursed at them, basically telling officers to move on.
Johnson and his girlfriend went inside their apartment and slammed the door, the report stated.
Another officer arrived, and police surrounded the building.
When Johnson opened the door, an officer ordered him to show his hands, come out and speak with police.
He and his girlfriend stepped back inside and shut the door again.
After Johnsons mother and more police arrived, he stepped outside as an officer drew a weapon and ordered Johnson to show his hands.
He refused as officers approached him. Johnson was tased, handcuffed and put into a patrol car.
In the car, he explained that a man in a ski mask hit his head, took $25 and his $200 cell phone, the police report noted.
He said the robber ran, and Johnson got in his car and followed until the man shot at him near the entrance to the complex. Johnson said he returned to the apartment.
The report does not indicate Johnson admitted to firing a weapon, nor does it note any charges being filed against Johnson. Bibb County jail records show he was arrested recently.
A Macon police news release Friday afternoon said no suspects have been identified in the shooting.
Neighbors reported seeing someone running from behind a building and police responded to a call about a suspicious person.
Those living nearby later realized he was a vagrant seeking shelter and was not likely involved in the incident.
