A 22-year-old Macon man was shot several times late Wednesday in an argument that a witness said erupted over a 98-cent loaf of bread.
Glenwood Van Lee Lamar was wounded about 11:20 p.m. in the 1000 block of Ash Street, a few blocks southeast of Tattnall Square Park near Calhoun Street.
Lamar was in stable condition at The Medical Center of Central Georgia, a Thursday news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office said. One of Lamar’s injuries was a gunshot wound to his lower back.
James Jereal Watson, of Alberts Lane, turned himself in at the Bibb Law Enforcement Center and was booked about 1 a.m. Thursday, according to Bibb jail records.
Watson, 18, was charged with aggravated assault.
Witnesses said Lamar and others were exchanging words after a dispute about some food — a loaf of bread, as it turned out — which triggered the shooting.
