A man was shot in east Macon on Wednesday afternoon.
Derrick Collins, 32, told investigators he was sweeping the porch of his house on Sunnydale Drive when two guys walked up demanding money, Bibb County sheriff's Lt. Sean DeFoe said.
Collins said he drew a pistol to fend the men off and he accidentally shot himself in the left arm.
Another bullet wound to Collins' side may have come from his attackers, but DeFoe said it also could have been self-inflicted.
Never miss a local story.
This makes the third person to be shot in Bibb County in less than 24 hours.
Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said about 4 p.m. that Collins was undergoing surgery and was in critical condition at the Medical Center, Navicent Health.
