Macon store employee shoots parking lot thief

MACON, Ga. -- An Academy Sports employee shot a man in a fight outside the store early Tuesday after finding the man rummaging through his 1993 Honda Accord.

According to The Telegraph newspaper, after completing his shift at 1 a.m., Emmanuel Monroe walked into the parking lot, located at 1689 Eisenhower Parkway, and saw 51-year-old Charles Stinson Jr. inside his car, according to a Macon police report released Tuesday.

Monroe, 27, confronted Stinson, asking what he was doing in the car. Stinson was in the front seat, leaning in to the back of the car. Stinson replied, “I did not know it was your car,” according to the report.

A struggle broke out and Stinson ran off. Meanwhile, Monroe retrieved his gun from underneath the center console of the car. He told police that Stinson seemed to reach for something and he fired three shots from his .38 caliber revolver, according to the report.
