Would-be teen intruder shot in Macon

Macon police are investigating a shooting that happened shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday on Beech Avenue.

Macon police Capt. Jimmy Barbee said investigators believe the shooting stemmed from the sale of a stolen automobile.

An armed 14-year-old male allegedly entered a residence on Beech Avenue looking for someone.

The teenager searched the home but found no one, Barbee said. Residents were hiding in the closet.

As the teen was leaving the house, he got into a confrontation with an adult male, possibly a relative of the residents.

The teen pointed a gun at the man, according to police.

The man fired a gunshot from his own weapon, grazing the teenager in the head, police said.

The teen was taken by ambulance to The Medical Center of Central Georgia. His condition was not available late Thursday.

No charges against the man are pending. Police continue to investigate the incident.
