A 21-year-old Macon man is charged with attempted murder after being arrested Friday.
Davares Jerrelle Evans was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force at an apartment in the 700 block of Tidewater Circle after they received a Crimestoppers tip, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.
