Incident report gives new details about Macon barbershop shooting

A Macon barber remains in stable condition at Medical Center, Navicent Health after his shop was robbed Tuesday night.

The barber, Terrence Thompson, 39, came outside of the barbershop with blood flowing from his head following the incident to tell the responding deputy he had been shot, according to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report released Thursday. 

Moments later, Thompson collapsed and told the deputy that he was going to die. 

Thompson was cutting a customer's hair when the robbers demanded money, according to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office news release.

After first responders arrived to attend to Thompson, the customer, Jamiah Walker, 25, gave his account of what took place during the incident. 

The report states Walker reported that two males with guns walked into the barbershop as Thompson was cutting his hair. 

As the two entered, one of the the males told them to "give it up." That's when Walker says he threw his hands up and Thompson told the suspects that he had nothing to give them. 

At that point, Thompson and the suspect got into a physical altercation, which is when Walker says he heard a gunshot. 

During the altercation, Walker says he gave one of the suspects his wallet, cell phone, keys and $40. 

Walker recalled the shooter wearing a red cover over his face, with a white shirt, holding a silver revolver.

However, he could not describe the second suspect. 

Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500, or Macon Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
