A man was shot multiple times Friday, Aug. 24, 2018, at Carriage Hills Apartments in north Macon. He's been taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, said Bibb County sheriff's Sgt. Linda Howard.

A 22-year-old man was shot Friday afternoon at apartments in north Macon.

A resident at Carriage Hills Apartments, off Northside Drive, said he heard about three pops then saw the wounded man running toward the back of the complex.

A trail of blood outside the T building led to another cordoned off area where Connor Bridges apparently collapsed.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said Bridges was shot several times. Bridges was listed in stable condition at the Medical Center, Navicient Health, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Bibb County sheriff’s Sgt. Linda Howard said his wounds were not life-threatening. Bridges was shot in both legs and his hand, the release said.

The suspect was described in the release as a male with a ski mask covering his face. The circumstances surrounding the shooting were still being investigated.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500, or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
