A teen was in critical condition Sunday after he was found walking around with a gunshot wound to the head in Bibb County. Another man was also hospitalized with several gunshot wounds to the chest. Investigators believe both shootings are connected, but they are still trying to determine how.

At 11:51 p.m. Saturday, someone called 911 to report that a man with a gunshot wound to the head was found walking in the 1200 block of Winton Avenue, according to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. Michael Billue, 18, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where he was listed in critical, but stable condition, the sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Sean DeFoe said.

Seven minutes later at 11:58p.m., deputies received a report that a man had been dropped off at a local hospital with several gunshot wounds to the chest, DeFoe said.

Once 22-year-old Erin Deshawn Johnson was dropped off at the hospital, the unknown driver of the vehicle left the hospital before speaking with investigators, DeFoe said.

It was reported that Johnson was possibly shot in the same neighborhood as Billue, DeFoe said. Johnson was listed to be in stable condition at the hospital Sunday, he said.

It's unclear who shot both men and why, but investigators believe the shootings are connected.

Investigators believe that these two men may have been involved in the same incident, which led to both of them being shot, DeFoe said. Investigators worked throughout the night, canvassing the Winton Avenue area for possible witnesses, he said.

Anyone with information in reference to these incidents is aksed to please contact the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at (478) 751-7500 and ask to leave a message for the on-call investigator or call Macon Regional Crime Stoppers at (877) 682-7463.
