A Macon man was shot while in the parking lot of a business at the corner of Pio Nono and Newberg avenues early Saturday morning, according to a Macon police report.
An off-duty police officer who was working as a security guard heard four gunshots about 3 a.m. coming from the roadway along Pio Nono Avenue. The officer saw the victim, Jeremy Thomas, hopping across the road with a gunshot to his right leg.
According to the report, Thomas and a woman with him had just exited the woman’s vehicle when a small white car drove by and fired four times at them before fleeing south on Pio Nono Avenue.
The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68-CRIME.
