Victim identified in fatal west Macon shooting

A man was shot to death at a home on Poppy Avenue in Macon Thursday, in what Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones says is Macon's 18th fatal shooting this year. 

Jones says he's 37-year-old Marcus Braswell. He says his body will be sent for an autopsy Thursday. 

The call came in just after 3:45 a.m.

Jones said investigators found Braswell inside, with two gunshot wounds to the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputy Clay Williams with the sheriff's office says they're looking for an unknown number of suspects in connection to the shooting.

Williams said a witness who was in the home at the time of the shooting is cooperating with investigators.
