Man suffers gunshot wound to leg in west Macon

A man reportedly forced himself into a west Macon apartment before receiving a gun shot wound to his leg on Saturday night.

Bibb County deputies responded to a call of a man shot just before midnight, according to a news release.

The man, identified as 24-year-old William Davis Jr., reportedly forced his way into the home of Timia Holloway, where he became involved in an altercation with another man.

Holloway was hosting a party for about eight people at her apartment at the Green Meadows Apartment complex when Davis kicked in the door, Lt. Randy Gonzalez said.

Holloway told deputies she was putting her child to sleep upstairs when she heard a noise.

She went downstairs to find Davis arguing with another man who was attending the party.

“Holloway went back upstairs to check on her child and said she heard some gunshots, but did not see who fired a gun,” according to the news release.

By the time deputies arrived, everyone had left the party and deputies found Davis not far from the apartment complex with a gunshot wound to his leg.

Davis was taken to the Medical Center, Navicent Health for treatment.

It’s still in the “fresh stages” of the investigation, Gonzales said, adding that investigators were waiting for Davis to recover so they could question him.

“Investigators are still trying to verify the events as described by Holloway,” he said.

Anyone with information about the event is urged to contact the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
