Accused gunman in Macon home invasion shooting arrested on Crimestoppers tip

A Crimestoppers tip led the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force to arrest a Macon man wanted in a home invasion and shooting.

Verconus Redding, 35, was picked up on Eisenhower Parkway just after 6 p.m. Monday, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

Redding is accused of shooting two people just after 10:30 a.m. Monday when he allegedly tried to force himself into a house on Goodwin Drive, the release stated.

One of the people inside the house slammed the door on Redding’s arm, and he fired the handgun, striking the person in the hand.

As Redding pulled his arm out of the door, he fired two more shots, hitting a second victim in the shoulder, the release said.

He fired a fourth shot into the window as he fled.

Redding also is accused of a May 30 shooting at M&M Food Store at 2760 Montpelier Ave.

He allegedly fired several shots at a car parked by the gas pumps while a woman and her infant were inside, the release stated.

Redding is charged with at least two counts of aggravated assault, burglary and violating his probation.
