A second deputy-involved shooting happened Thursday evening in the Village Green Community of Bibb County.

While patrolling, a Tan Ford Expedition was spotted speeding and was stopped by the Heat Unit. Witnesses say the suspect in the car pulled out a gun and fired shots before running away from the Deputies. They gave chase and found the 54-year-old Walter Cornelius Smith of Macon in the backyard of a Satterfield Drive home. Smith was injured and was transported to the Medical Center of Central Georgia and is listed in stable conditions.

The GBI will investigate this shooting.
