Arrest made in shooting at West Macon convenience store

According to the Bibb County Sheriff's Office, deputies have made an arrest in the shooting at the Solo Convenience Store at 4555 Mercer University Drive. 

On Wednesday afternoon, after the shooting, deputies received information from the Macon-Bibb 911 Dispatch that a person involved in the shooting incident was at the District 2 Patrol Office to turn himself in.

Investigators met with two males at the patrol office. Both males were transported to the Criminal Investigations Division to be interviewed. They were identified as 27-year-old Anthony Brown and 21-year-old Franklin Bowdry. Brown was released after the interview.

According to investigators, Bowdry and one of the victims, Kentarious Bush, had gotten into a fight several weeks ago. Bush had beat up Bowdry. Bowdry never reported the incident. 

Thursday morning, Bowdry saw Bush at the gas pumps of the Solo Convenience Store. When Bush approached Bowdry, Bowdry fired shots at Bush, striking him and 47-year-old Reginald Raines. Raines had nothing to do with the incident.

Bowdry was charged with aggravated assault, criminal damage to property, and a probation violation. He was transported to Bibb County Law Enforcement Center. Bond is set at $39,100.00.

Anyone with additional information should call Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
