Two teenagers were charged with shooting and wounding a woman Thursday afternoon in a vacant lot in Payne City.
According to Bibb County jail records, Vancleto Thomas Gray, Jr., 17, was arrested around 9 p.m. Thursday night. A news release says he was taken to the Bibb jail to wait before his first appearance in Magistrate Court. A 16-year-old juvenile was also arrested and taken to the Youth Detention Center.
Witnesses told Bibb County Sheriff's deputies that they heard shots fired around 4 p.m. and saw two males running towards Vineville Avenue.
The victim walked from the vacant lot and was found by a passerby, according to the news release. She was taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia. BSO spokesman Lt. Gregory Rachel had no update on the woman's condition or information about what caused the shooting.
Macon police also assisted in the search for the two suspects who were found sitting on the steps of an apartment building on Ridge Avenue.
