Three Arrested After East Macon Standoff

Three people are in jail after an apparent standoff in an east Macon neighborhood.

It happened on the 1100 block of Hawkinsville Avenue.

Ronea Foster says she and her boyfriend Davarius Curry woke up last night when they heard fighting and gunshots. Police arrived on the scene less than an hour later.

But Foster says she didn't open the door when police knocked, because she was scared.

Around 2 a.m., police told the people in the duplex, "Please come out of the house with your hands behind your back."

Officers threatened to use tear gas and a suspect inside released several people, including at least two children.

Police broke down Foster's door around 3 a.m.

Sgt. Chapman with Macon police said he could not release any details, but eyewitnesses tell us two men and a woman were taken into custody. They say they heard two men arguing about a woman before the standoff. 

Witnesses on the scene told 13WMAZ it was a hostage situation, but Foster denied that.

Officers on the scene referred questions to police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet, who could not be reached for comment today.

But Foster's boyfriend, 26-year-old Davarius Curry, is in jail today, charged with aggravated assault and a probation violation.

So are another man and a woman who live at the same Jeffersonville Road address as Curry: 24-year-old Katonya Curry is also charged with aggravated assault and a probation violation; 19-year-old Preston Curry is charged with aggravated assault.
