Milledgeville man shot twice in motel room

Milledgeville police are looking for two gunmen who barged into a motel room Monday night and shot the occupant.

Jeremy Dixon, 32, told investigators a woman knocked on his door at the Budget Inn on Hancock Street about 11:30 p.m.

When Dixon opened the door two men rushed in and started shooting, said Capt. Dray Swicord of the Milledgeville Police Department.

Dixon was wounded in the lip and arm and will require plastic surgery, Swicord said.

“All evidence leads to a possible drug deal gone bad,” Swicord said.
