No criminal charges to be filed in fatal shooting of Emmauel Stroud Jr.


MACON, Ga. -- A release from the office of the district attorney on Friday states that the Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney's Office has ruled the fatal shooting of 25-year-old Emmanuel Lee Stroud Jr. to be justified.

According to the release, no criminal charges will be filed.

On Sept. 16, 2017, Bibb County deputies responded to a report of a person shot in the road near the intersection of Edwina and Walmar Drives around 11:50 p.m.

Deputies found both Stround and 36-year-old Tecovelin Starling shot. Stroud later died from his injuries.

An investigation by the sheriff's office showed evidence that Stroud shot Starling and then Starling shot Stroud in self-defense.
