Man shot during home invasion in east Macon

An east Macon man was listed in stable condition Thursday at The Medical Center of Central Georgia with a gunshot wound suffered during a home invasion.

Isiah Baldwin, 60, had just finished watching the first game of the baseball World Series early Thursday with friends when a masked gunman entered his house, 1033 Chestney St., and ordered them to “give it up,” according to a news release from the Macon Police Department.

The gunman entered the home through a back door and demanded Baldwin and three other people get on the ground while wielding a large-barreled handgun, according the police report.

The gunman was described as a tall black male with a medium build, wearing a gray and black hooded coat, blue jeans and a black bandana covering his face, according to the report.

He reportedly was accompanied by two assailants both dressed in black.

The gunman shot Baldwin in the right shoulder before running away into the Fort Hill neighborhood about 1:20 a.m., according to police.

Various drug paraphernalia was found inside the home, according to the report.

No arrests were made.

Anyone with information is asked to call Macon police at (478) 751-7500 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68-CRIME.
