The Bibb Sheriff's Office says someone driving down Cherry Street started shooting at people outside the Thirsty Turtle.

MACON, Ga. — A woman is dead and seven other people are hurt after shootings and stabbings outside a downtown Macon bar early Friday morning.

The Bibb County Sheriff's Office says after a fight, someone drove down Cherry Street shooting at people standing outside of the Thirsty Turtle around 2:45 a.m. Friday.

30-year-old Briana Braddy, of Macon, is currently out of surgery and listed to be in critical condition.

The other victims related to this incident are 21-year-old Rysheena Moore, 40-year-old Antonio Smith, 31-year-old Takeshi High and 26-year-old Justin Miller. They are listed to be in stable condition.
