Deputies found the victim, 24 year old Roger Gibson at the Macon-Bibb Fire Station located near the entrance of Macon Garden Apartments.  It was reported that Gibson had been cut several times on the left leg. Gibson and another male, Barrington Richards (aka- Jamaica), 42 years old of Macon got into a fight at the apartment complex.
