Two injured in southwest Macon shooting

A shooting in southwest Macon left two people injured Monday morning.

Macon resident Vaparian Fowler, 18, was visiting relative Steven Jones, 44, at a home in the 2400 block of Goodwin Road when he heard a knock at the door just after 10:30 a.m. When Fowler opened the door, he saw two black males, one of whom fired multiple rounds into the home, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

Fowler was struck in the right shoulder, and Jones was struck in the right hand. Both were taken to the Medical Center, Navicent Health to be treated for injuries not thought to be life-threatening.
