Macon police are investigating a shooting Tuesday night at Ingleside Village Pizza, 2395 Ingleside Ave.
Chief Mike Burns said the shooting happened outside the restaurant. Eric Marcus, 39, an employee, was shot and the injuries were not life-threatening, Burns said. The incident occurred just after 9:30 p.m., according to a release from the Macon Police Department.
According to the release, Marcus went out the back door of the restaurant to smoke when he noticed a man messing with a friend’s car. When Marcus confronted the man, the man pulled out a gun and demanded Marcus hand over his wallet. The two tussled and Marcus was shot in the shoulder, Walker said. He was taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia, where he was being treated and was in stable condition.
The suspect was described as a black male wearing dark clothing and a bandana as a mask, Walker said.
