Bibb County sheriff’s Lt. Randy Gonzalez said the pair was shot in the 200 block of Fairview Avenue but ran to 823 Applewood St.
A group of women who live in a house at the corner of Fairview Avenue and Applewood Street said they went outside to see about the commotion. From their front porch, they told a reporter they could see Risby collapsed near a tan car parked in a driveway.
Other neighbors refused to talk with reporters.
Risby would have turned 25 next month.
His death makes the 27th killing in Macon this year.
