Macon police responded to a report of shots fired early morning Sunday and found two men shot.

The incident happened after 2 a.m. Sunday along the 900 block of Putnam Street, according to the police incident report.

The responding police officer found a crowd on the street and two gunshot victims.

Aaron Thaboun, who was wounded in the buttocks, told police that he and a group were standing on the road in front of a house when a white Crown Victoria with a dark stripe drove by, rounded the block, returned, stopped down the street from their location and opened fire, according to the report.

The responding officer applied a pressure tourniquet to the second victim, Daniel Rivera, until emergency medical service arrived on the scene. The victims were not able to give information about where they lived.

The “Bottom Side Gang” is suspected to have been involved, according to the report.
