A man admitted to shooting another man outside of his home, according to investigators.

Adel Police said Carlton Brown, 25, shot 23-year-old Shannon Tyrone Brown on Ollie Street just before noon on Tuesday.

Carlton Brown was arrested Wednesday morning and aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during a crime, and firearms discharge near a highway.

Shannon was taken to a hospital in Macon.

Craig Lamont Newsome, a cousin of Shannon's who also lives on Ollie St., said he had accepted the shooting Wednesday but he said other family members may not be so quick to do the same.

"I'm glad [Adel Police] took care of their business," said Newsome. "But some of the other closer family members, I don't know how they gonna react when this person just get a little time and get out. Ain't no tellin' how they gonna react to it."

Officers also recovered a handgun that they believe was used during the shooting of Shannon Brown. That gun was determined to be one that was reported stolen from a residence where a burglary recently happened in Adel.

Investigators are working to determine the connection with Carlton Brown and the earlier crime.
