MACON, Ga. (AP) — Authorities in central Georgia say a 67-year-old woman shot and wounded a teenager.
The Telegraph newspaper in Macon reports (http://bit.ly/2aU6B8w ) Delores Gibson-Council told police she encountered a group of young people about 8:30 p.m. Saturday as she was driving down the street. She said she honked her horn and a 14-year-old boy came to her door and threatened her, and she shot him in the abdomen.
The teen was listed in critical but stable condition.
Gibson-Council is charged with aggravated assault. She was being held without bond in the Bibb County jail. It wasn’t immediately clear whether she had an attorney who could comment.
