MACON, Ga. — A 28-year-old woman from Warner Robins was shot in the left shoulder after a road rage incident at around 3:00 a.m. Monday morning in Perry.
According to Captain Dykes of the Perry police Department, the shooting took place off of General Courtney Hodges between the West Gate and the welcome center on the grass medium.

Three shots hit the car, including one to the victim’s shoulder. In addition, investigators found nine shell casings on the scene.
The victim was taken to Perry Hospital and later transferred to Macon to remove the bullet. She is expected to recover.
