Three wounded in Macon shootings

Three people were shot late Monday night in separate shootings in Unionville and the public housing community commonly referred to as “Bird City.”

Macon police were called to the 1800 block of Wren Avenue in Anthony Homes where one person was wounded shortly after 10 p.m. No other information was available Tuesday.

Nearly two hours later, two people were injured in a shooting in the 400 block of Poppy Avenue shortly before midnight.

According to a police report, officers responded to a call about shots fired on Poppy Avenue.

The report said one of the victims was dropped off at The Medical Center of Central Georgia by a woman driving a baby-blue Isuzu Rodeo which had a bullet hole in the side of the vehicle. The woman drove off quickly after dropping off the victim, later identified as Jarrion Ussery. Ussery was in critical condition and unable to speak after receiving a gunshot wound to the left chest, left elbow, right ankle and right thigh areas.

The second victim, Travious Porter, 24, of Elpis Street, told officers he was walking on Vinnie Avenue when he heard multiple shots. He hid under a vehicle until the shooting stopped, then ran toward Elpis Street before noticing he had been shot. He knocked on the door of a neighbor, who took him to the hospital. Porter was struck in the back of his right thigh.

According to the report, Porter refused to write a statement and was uncooperative with the investigation.
