Christopher Valentine Death – The man who locked himself inside a restroom at a hospital in Macon took his own life. According to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, they responded to reports that a man had locked himself in a bathroom at an Atrium Navicent office facility located on the 700 block of Pine Street at approximately 9:15 p.m. on Wednesday. The building was not occupied by any civilians or staff members during the time that the incident was taking place, according to the officials.
Following a standoff with Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) and other law enforcement agencies that lasted for more than two hours, the man allegedly fired multiple shots, resulting in his own death. The man had only recently been freed from jail, according to the officials, and he refused to engage in conversation with the negotiators. In the course of the standoff, nobody was held as a hostage. Christopher Clyde Valentine Sr., 49 years old, was identified as the individual earlier on Thursday morning. He is a resident of Macon.
