Bibb County sheriff’s investigators are investigating a shooting that took place Saturday afternoon at East Royal Court, according to a sheriff’s report.
The victim, Cobey Durham, was found lying in an empty lot next to his residence with a gunshot wound to the head, the report stated. Durham was alert and was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia.
A witness told investigators he noticed two males walking with a shirt wrapped around something that looked like a shotgun. The witness called 911. The witness told investigators he heard loud arguing followed by several gunshots. Another witness told investigators he saw a beige Jeep Cherokee speeding from the scene.
A resident who lives across the street from the incident was playing with his children in his garage when he heard the shots. At least one shot passed through that person’s home as he gathered his family to take cover from the shooting. After the shooting was over, the man ran across the street to help Durham.
The report stated Durham is in stable condition.
