BUTLER, Ga (WRBL) - BUTLER, Ga (WRBL) -- The GBI is investigating an aggravated assault where investigators say a man used a baseball bat and a gun Saturday evening.

43-year-old Raymond Gibson is being charged with aggravated assault.

Gibson went up to 54-year-old Edwin Kruse outside of 36-year-old Christal Gibson's, his ex-wife's, house. That's when Gibson shot Kruse in his abdomen and leg, according to the press release. Gibson then began to assault Kruse and his ex-wife with a baseball bat.

Kruse was transported to the Macon Medical Center by helicopter where he underwent surgery for his injuries, according to officials. Christal was treated for a broken arm and contusions to her hips and legs.

Kruse and Christal did survive.
