Bibb County investigators arrested a 22-year-old Macon man and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in a shooting outside a Family Dollar store on Jeffersonville Road on Wednesday morning, according to a Thursday news release.
Jacoby Quintarius Jackson, of Macon, turned himself in to investigators for an interview about the shooting. Investigators reviewed crime-scene evidence and witness testimony, and Jackson was placed under arrest later Wednesday.
Jackson is charged with shooting Tavares Williams, 21, outside the store about 11 a.m. The two men were reportedly arguing when Jackson allegedly pulled a gun and shot Williams. Williams was taken by a friend to a local hospital, where he is in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the chest.
Investigators say they think the argument may have been related to an incident that took place last weekend in the Kings Park neighborhood, the news release stated.
