Pete Braddy thought he heard fireworks and after getting up to check it out, he was grazed by a bullet on the side of his head. Here's what neighbors have to say.

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — 40-year-old man Pete Braddy was shot in the head just after 1 a.m. Tuesday night right outside his house in Warner Robins on the 100 block of Greenway Drive.

According to the Warner Robins Police Department, Braddy thought he heard fireworks and when getting up to check it out, he stepped outside and a bullet grazed the side of his head.

Braddy was transported to the Houston Medical Center for treatment, and he is expected to recover from his injuries.

Now, Braddy's neighbors are reflecting.

"I worked with him while building his house and we did one other together," Larry Jozwik, board member and crew leader for Habitat for Humanity, said.

Jozwik was shocked after hearing what happened to Braddy.

"About 7 years ago, [the] very first house I worked on with Habitat was Pete's house," Jozwik said.

Three houses down from Braddy's house, Jozwik was on the clock and working on repairing a house when the news got to him.

"He was a very easy guy to work with," Jozwik said. "Good mood, good spirits all the time, very helpful and knowledgeable in the business, so we had a lot of good experiences working with him."

Jozwik wasn't the only one shocked. The neighbors we spoke with all related to Braddy and said they thought they heard fireworks too.

"It could have been me," neighbor Greg Miller said. "It really hurts me that it could've gone left really quickly."

Now, Braddy's neighbors hope he's able to come back fully healed and recovered.

"I hope that he's not hurt, and I hope that he's okay and he can go and maneuver throughout his days," Miller said.

Jozwik is also wishing Braddy well.

"Hopefully Pete will be okay and recover soon," he said.

Detective Pierce with Macon Regional Crimestoppers has taken over this ongoing investigation. If anyone has any information on this incident, you can contact Detective Pierce at 478-302-5380.
