Macon man flees ambulance

A Macon man snatched off an IV and ran out of an ambulance Thursday morning while being treated for a gunshot wound in the thigh, according to Macon police.

Saul Norris, of Gray Highway, told officers he was struck in the head with a bottle by an unidentified woman he knew at about 6:15 a.m., according to a police report.

Then a man, whose name has not been released by police, approached him in reference to the argument.

The man shot Norris in the thigh with a sawed off shotgun, according to the report.

Officers responded to a call about the shooting near the intersection of Mitchell and Fort Hill streets. When an ambulance from The Medical Center of Central Georgia arrived and started treating Norris, he fled, declining further treatment, according to the report.

Police Sgt. Melanie Hofmann said an ambulance was called a second time, about two hours later, to help Norris. He was gone when the ambulance arrived.
