Weekly Bible Verses:
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” Luke 24:1-7 (ESV)

A Macon man was shot in the leg after police say he broke into a South Bibb home. According to a news release, it happened around 2:15 p.m. on Monday. Bibb County Sheriff’s Deputies say they responded to a call of a person shot at a home in the 4500 block of Jones Road. When deputies arrived they found Brandon Renfroe holding a gun at another man who was dressed in all black and lying on the ground in the backyard. The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Blake Elliot Herman, had been shot in the leg by the resident. The resident says he heard a noise coming from his sister, Jessica Renfroe’s bedroom. Herman opened the door and saw a man standing in the doorway. Renfroe says the two got into a physical altercation and Herman broke free, running out of the backdoor. Renfroe chased after him with a gun. During the chase, he claims Herman reached into his pocket. Renfroe says he feared for his life, thinking Herman had a gun so he fired twice. Herman was struck in the upper left leg. An incident report from the Sheriff’s Office says when deputies got to the home they saw Herman lying on the ground dressed in black with a grey stocking mask near his head and clear gloves on his hand. Herman allegedly told deputies he had a key to the home and that is how he got into the home. Jessica Renfroe says that she had dated Herman about two years ago, but never gave him a key. Jessica told deputies she used to work with Herman at Papa John’s Pizza and she would always leave her keys and purse in the office while she was working. According to the release, Herman told deputies he used to date the woman and that he was there to get revenge. Herman was taken to Medical Center Navicent Health for treatment for the gunshot wounds. A warrant was issued for burglary. He will be transported to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center once he is released from the hospital. Police are still investigating. Anyone with information can call the Bibb Sheriff’s Office at 478-751 -7500.
