MACON, Ga. — Macon police are investigating a deadly shooting at a motel in the central Georgia city.

Police say the killing occurred around 4:30 a.m. Monday at the Scottish Inn on Romeiser Drive, near Middle Georgia State College.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones tells The Telegraph that a 19-year old man was killed in an altercation that began in one of the rooms and spilled outside.

Jones said authorities were trying to locate next of kin before releasing the man’s identity.

Few other details were immediately available early Monday.
