MACON, Ga. (41NBC/WMGT) – A 12-year-old boy is in stable condition after he was shot Wednesday afternoon. Around 4:15 a.m., deputies were called to Houston Avenue in reference to a car accident. While they were en route, they received a second report of gunshots in the area. The 911 dispatcher then told deputies the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The car, in which the 12-year-old boy was, was declared stolen.
Investigators say the driver of the Chevy Tahoe told them he ran a stop sign and hit the SUV on Houston Avenue after seeing his girlfriend’s car that had been stolen earlier in the day.
The drivers of the Tahoe and the stolen vehicle then began shooting at each other.
The incident is under investigation and charges have been filed.
