Macon police are investigating the Tuesday morning shooting death of a 28-year-old man at an apartment complex on Log Cabin Drive.
VaShaun Kentez Glover was killed about 2 a.m. Tuesday at the Green Meadows Townhouses, police said.
Although police are not connecting this killing with a fatal shooting in late September, the apartment where Glover was shot is the same apartment where Joelissa Mariqua Johnson lived, according to Bibb County jail records.
Johnson was one of three people arrested in the Sept. 22 shooting death of 20-year-old Terrilyn Williams, who was killed in front of her apartment on North Atwood Drive. A teenage girl also was shot in the wrist during that incident.

Johnson was charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and probation violation in the September shooting.
Macon police officials refused to comment on whether the two fatal shootings may be linked. Police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet said the investigation into Glover’s death is “fluid,” with detectives following several leads. Gaudet said she isn’t authorized to comment about specific aspects of the case.
According to a police report, officers responded to a report of shots fired at the complex early Tuesday. At the time, no one was reported being shot. At the apartment, officers noticed that the rear windows on both floors and one of the front windows of the unit had bullet holes.
While collecting shell casings, officers looked through the window and saw blood. They kicked in the door and found Glover’s body lying face-down on the staircase.
Casings from .45-, .40-, and .22-caliber handguns were found at the scene, the report said.
One of the residents of the complex, who would only identify himself as Fred, said he heard the gunshots, but didn’t hear anything else — no shouting or arguing. He also said he didn’t hear a car leaving the scene.
“Just gunshots and silence. That’s how it was,” he said.
According to the police report, a neighbor told police she heard gunshots after she heard a lot of knocking at the apartment’s door. The neighbor told police before they saw the blood that Johnson lived there but had been arrested, so she thought the apartment was vacant.
Jeffrey S. Jackson, a local minister, was at the complex Tuesday and said the shootings are a problem for the entire community.
“What are the mayor and the police chief going to do?” he said. “This city is under siege, and they ain’t doing nothing.”
Jackson said he is organizing a candlelight vigil later this month for Williams. Police said Williams was an innocent bystander in a feud between two groups of young men at the apartment.
In addition to Johnson, police also arrested Brianna Dominique Curry, 17, and Dasjwan Tranard Foster, also 17. Both were charged with felony murder and aggravated assault in connection with Williams’ death last month.
