COLUMBUS, Ga. – Muscogee County officials confirm that a man is dead following a shooting on Baker Plaza Drive Saturday night.

Columbus Police say they found 33-year-old Marcus Barron suffering from a gunshot wound he got during a fight with another neighbor. He was taken to the Midtown Medical Center Intensive Care Unit, where he later died of a gunshot wound to the chest, according to Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan. Barron died Sunday morning at 5:12.

Police eventually found the alleged shooter, 42-year-old Reginald Glenn, a ways down Baker Plaza Drive. Police say Glenn ran away after shooting Barron in the doorway of his second floor apartment. When asked about the relationship between Glenn and Barron, police say the two had known each other since childhood.

Glenn originally faced aggravated assault charges and possession of marijuana, less than one ounce (police found about 2.5g valued at $25 on Glenn). However, the aggravated assault charge has been upgraded to murder according to Columbus Police. More charges are pending, including possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Glenn is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing in Recorder’s Court on Tuesday, February 16 at 9 a.m. News 3 will be on hand to pass along further details in this case.
