He then called 911, according to the sheriff’s office.
“Gay was transported to the Navicent Health Medical Center, where he is listed in stable condition,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
“It was stated that a Green Toyota Camry, driven by 23-year-old Steven Lamar Gay, of Macon, was on Sharon Drive when an unknown suspect in a black car started shooting at him. It was stated the suspect fired several shots at Gay.”
“No one else was injured in the incident. No information is available on the suspect at this time,” noted the sheriff’s office.
Investigators marked at least eight shell casings on the street about a mile from the store, reported the Telegraph, and deputies appeared to be searching for something as they circled around a brick house.
“Are you trying to tell me somebody got shot at eight times over here and I didn’t hear a thing,” a neighbor told a Telegraph reporter, saying that she had been home all day. “My God. … That’s scary.”
Broken shards of glass were strewn across the street, reported the newspaper.
