Macon police are investigating three shootings reported late Thursday.

Up to three people were wounded by gunfire, but there is no initial indication the crimes are related.

In one of the incidents, a man was shot in the right forearm during an armed robbery near Womack and Woolfork streets in Fort Hill shortly after 8 p.m., according to a Macon police news release.

The victim, 34-year-old Anthony Adkins, of Macon, told police he was walking from the Quick Serve gas station on Emery Highway when a gunman demanded money.

Adkins took out the cash in his pocket and threw it on the ground and was shot in the right forearm while running away.

He drove to Coliseum Medical Centers where he met with police.

Another incident occurred shortly after 9 p.m. along Neal Avenue near Gillian Street.

The victim, 50-year-old Donald Williams, of Macon, told police he was walking along Neal Avenue when he was approached by a champagne-colored Honda Accord occupied by several black males. The driver demanded money, and when Williams told him he didn’t have anything, he fired several shots into the ground, according to the police incident report.

As Williams walked away, he was hit in the right calf by gunfire. A family member drove him to the hospital where he met police.

No initial details have been released in the other instance of gunfire.
