Montezuma police department

A man who allegedly shot another man overnight in Macon County turned himself in to authorities Monday.

Tony Davis turned himself into police in the shooting death of 44-year-old Willie Simpson , Jr., of Montezuma.

Montezuma Police Chief Eric Finch says officers were dispatched to a home in the 700 block of Cedar Court around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. 

When they got to the home, they found Simpson lying in the middle of the street. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

"Our prayers goes out to the Simpson family. I am glad no one else was injured in this incident," Finch said in a statement.

Right now, they don't know what led to the shooting, but police said the two men knew each other.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting Montezuma police in the investigation.
