The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a death that was reported at a residence on Trophy Place, just before 5:00 p.m.

Deputies responded to a person assaulting a woman at an address in the 3700 block of Trophy Place. While in route deputies were advised that the suspect had been shot by the victim’s husband. Upon arrival deputies found a 25-year-old male of Lizella, in the front yard of the residence naked with gunshot wounds to the chest.

It was reported that a 67-year-old female was on a riding mower cutting her grass when the naked male subject tackled her off the lawnmower.
