Shots fired near Pio Nono sheriff’s office location

Shots were fired near a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office location early Monday morning.

Around 3 a.m., two deputies were inside the District 3 office in the 600 block of Pio Nono Avenue when they heard several gunshots outside. The deputies went to investigate the front of the building along Pio Nono, where the shots seemed to occur, and saw a dark-colored -- possibly red -- older model Ford Mustang speeding away with its lights off.

The deputies were not certain of the direction the shots were fired.
