The investigation into a shooting on Ibex Street continues after one person died and two others were injured. The Bibb County Sheriff's Office calls the shooting scene a liquor house where drinks were sold illegally.
We spoke to one neighbor that said the house has been a neighborhood problem for a long time. Other neighbors told us the house where the shooting took place is always busy with people coming in and out, cars lined up and down the street, and where a lot of drugs and alcohol are consumed.
"90 percent of the calls they get in the sheriff's office is from me -- the gunshots that have fired around there, and when they get here, everybody done tore up and gone, and that leave me and my family vulnerable," Lucious Farrar said.
Sheriff David Davis with the Bibb County Sheriff's Office said there are several shot or liquor houses that sell alcohol illegally in Macon-Bibb County and they are nothing new.
"You close it down and another one pops up, and in certain neighborhoods and certain places, these are so ingrained in the community," Davis said.
Davis said they have responded to dozens of calls on Ibex Street. Even though they have run drug busts and arrested people, shutting down these 'liquor houses" is not easy.
"And so it's very hard, because you go there and nobody is going to admit to selling alcohol by the drink or by the shot, we would say, they're just going to say, 'We are having a party here,'" Davis said.
But people who live near the liquor house like Farrar wonder when the violence will stop.
"Well, already, somebody got killed, so I'm not sure what it's going to take. I mean, I really don't know," Farrar said.
The Bibb County Sheriff's Office is asking the community to call Macon Regional Crimestoppers if they have any information that may lead to an arrest at 1-877-68-CRIME.
