Man tells police he shot woman in self defense
Not happy with listing the victim's name, but at least the police report got the name of the suspect correct.A southwest Macon man reported shooting a woman who lives nearby in the abdomen on Saturday, after she came at him with a butcher knife, according to a police report.
Tyrone Woodard, of Deeb Drive, told police he fired two warning shots into the ground after Candice Hughes, of Leone Drive North, threatened him in his yard Saturday. When she charged him with the knife, Woodard said he shot Hughes in the lower abdomen, the report states.
Hughes left, but police found her at her Leone Drive address. She was taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia, according to the report, but an update on her condition was not available from the hospital Monday.
The report indicates that the shooting is under investigation, but Hughes is listed as the suspect and Woodards as the victim.
