A 19-year-old is wanted in the shooting of two men at a west Macon apartment complex, and police are asking for your help finding him.

Shannon Dwayne Williams Jr. is wanted in the Monday shooting of Justin Howe and Tamarcus Cole at Westminster Apartments at 1655 N. Atwood Drive, according to a Thursday news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

Howe, 25, and Cole, 24, were in the parking lot when a man started shooting into the car they were in and then ran away. Howe was shot in the chest and Cole was shot in the right leg, authorities said.

Anyone with information about Williams’ location is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 478-751-7500 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.

Witnessing a crime and reporting it can be just as frightening as being the victim of a crime. Here’s what you should do if you witness illegal activity.
