Macon Co. Shooting Investigation

Updated: Thursday, April 25 2013, 07:24 AM EDT

Authorities in Macon County are investigating a shooting that sent one man to the hospital.


The shooting happened around 6 p.m. Wednesday at a residence on Lake Emory Road. A neighbor says he was sitting on his back porch and heard a pop. He says within minutes rescue crews were at the house. 


The Macon County Sheriff's Office says they believe the shooting was accidental. It does not appear to be suspicious. Investigators say there was a witness and it's believed that alcohol may have played a part in the shooting.


Officials are in the early stages of this investigation. They hope to be able to release more information sometime Thursday.
