A 17-year-old was shot in the leg Thursday afternoon in a gun battle with another man in south Macon.
Dominick Kantrell Howell Sr., 30, is charged with aggravated assault in connection with shooting Dequavia Pollard off Houston Avenue about 1:30 p.m., according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
Howell reportedly was at his home on Villa Crest Avenue when Pollard confronted him and an argument ensued.
Howell told police he got in his car and tried to leave, but “someone fired several shots” into his car, the release said. Later, Howell returned to the area, saw Pollard walking down the street and opened fire toward him, the release said.
Never miss a local story.
Pollard was wounded in the right leg.
Howell was booked in the Bibb County jail where he remained without bond late Thursday.
Pollard is expected to survive.
It was unclear what prompted the argument.
