A Roberta man fatally shot Wednesday night in Macon was visiting friends, according to police.
Police released information Thursday that 32-year-old Ronald Howard, of Seagler Road, was shot as he sat in a white 2005 Honda after arriving at 1887 Rocky Creek Road about 7:10 p.m.
The weapon has been described as a small-caliber handgun, according to a police report released Thursday.
When police responded to the shooting, they found 29-year-old Quincy Wells trying to drive away, and officers blocked the driveway with their vehicle, according to a police report.
When police went into the house, they found Howard on the hallway floor with Deanthony Huff, who lives at the house, kneeling beside him. Police have not released Huff’s age.
Howard, who was shot once in the back, was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia, where he was pronounced dead at 7:45 p.m., according to police and Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.
Wells, of nearby Adger Road, and Huff told officers that Wells entered the home and then Howard came in saying he’d been shot, according to the report.
Wells said he was going to get help when the officers arrived, according to police.
Both men were questioned and released, said police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet.
She described both men as Howard’s friends.
So far, no one detectives have questioned heard gunshots. Still, police say the shooting happened at the house, Gaudet said.
Police have not released a description of the shooter.
“They don’t know,” Gaudet said. “They’re beating the bushes and looking for information.”
