    Macon homeowner gets shot, responds by shooting armed robber in eye

    A Macon man was shot in the stomach by an armed robber and returned fire, shooting the robber in the eye Monday night, according to a Macon Police Department report.

    Grover E. Glover, 64, of Lamont St., reported to police that Jamel Scott came to his house just before 11 p.m. and asked to use the telephone to call for help for his broken down car.

    Once inside, Scott pulled out a gun and demanded money from Glover, according to the report.

    After striking him in the head with the gun, Glover told Scott his wallet was in a drawer in his bedroom. Once in the bedroom, Glover instead pulled a gun from the drawer and Scott fired before he could turn around, according to the report.

    Glover told officers he then shot Scott in the eye and Scott ran out of the house, leaving his gun behind, according to the report.

    Warrants have been issued for Scott's arrest on the charges of armed robbery and aggravated assault, said Macon police spokeswoman Sgt. Melanie Hofmann.

    I'm guessing it was NOT a 45 ACP that he got shot in the eye with..

    Always carry at home. Don't answer the door, especially at night, without a firearm.

    Who let's anyone in their home anymore?

    If they were truly in need of a phone, then why not take them a cordless and have them make the call outside.

    And another thing, who doesn't have a cell phone these days?

    I would love to know what caliber that shot was that someone can be shot in the eye and keep running. I would imagine a decent 9mm in the eye will penetrate enough to really f'*&% things up for someone.

    I'm sure that since the robber had one eye, getting his piece was the least of his worries.

    I'm just going out on a limb here, but I would venture a guess of .22 or maybe .380.

    I'm glad to hear that more and more people are saying this. My fiancee thought I was crazy for a while. If it's not on me, it's always in reach.

    I don't know about .380. I would go as high as .32, or maybe .38 with really light cowboy loads. Then, there's .25 as well. It's possible that the bullet entered at an angle and got lodged in the skull inside the eye socket :vomit:

    With dope deals, it's all fun and games until somebody gets their eye put out...

    I have heard human forehead stop 9mm or even .45 before but if it really was in the eye socket, I would say either one of those rounds would have penetrated.

    My money is on a 38 or .380, though a .22lr would also be likely.

    Unless I'm headed for work, I strap on immediately after raising from bed. If I don't do it, I feel odd mentally, as if something is eating at me from the subconscious level. The same goes for when I return home.

    It's too bad that a man can't answer his door without fear of forced entry or some other crime of force, but that's life in today's world. I have recently walked out the back door and slipped discretely down the side of the house to the front door, armed of course, to receive a strange person at my stoop. Their seemingly unthreatening profile means nothing to me because you simply never know. I just don't open my front door unless your known to me.

    My wife doesn't even mind anymore that I home carry, thank goodness. Two years ago, she wasn't sure if she even wanted me to own any firearms.

    Now when my GFL comes, I can resume concealed carry, which has been sorely missed.

    Small cal. near eye, rips skin blood all over eye area. With his heart running at high speed do you think he knows where his round hit?

    I slight addendum to this. It turns out that Glover was shot in the stomach by the BG before he was able to get off the shot that landed in the BG's eye.

    I'm working oncontacting the reporter that posted the story to see if I can find out any calibers.
