Police search for man in morning shooting

  • Follow Latest News

Richmond County investigators are searching for a man wanted in a shooting in the 1500 block of Gordon Highway early today.

The man is believed to have been driving a distinct pickup truck while the shooting occurred.

Investigators said the truck is an older model blue Chevrolet C-10 or S-10 with silver flames painted on the hood, Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Blaise Dresser stated in an e-mail. It also had large chrome rims and “smoke stack style” exhaust pipes near the back window. At about 2:30 a.m., a 23-year-old man said he and his brother were driving east on Gordon Highway when the driver of the truck pulled alongside him and began shooting, the e-mail stated. The victim fled to his brother’s home with gunshot wounds to his leg and arm. He was then transported to Medical College of Georgia Hospital for treatment. Around that same time, a second man reported that as he was driving on Gordon Highway near Molly Pond Road, a man in a truck with the same description threw a liquor bottle on the hood of his car. The 39-year-old victim said he drove closer to the truck in order to get the license plane number and the driver then pointed a black handgun at him, the e-mail stated.

Anyone with information on the driver can call the sheriff’s office at (706) 821-1080 or (706) 821-1020. Callers may remain anonymous.

Here's another one that needs to be shot on sight. Not fit to cohabitate with humans. The thugs are taking over people! The cops can't protect you and the judges won't do anything to them even if they are caught. Arm yourself and return fire if threatened.

The criminal element is alive

The criminal element is alive and well. I wonder if a certain segment of society will ever address their crime epidemic and stop filling up prisons?

Sounds like a white boy in a truck mad at black folks so he's acting out. I wonder why some people in society think one race are only in prisons? most who think like that minds are warped and seared with an RACIAL iron from birth.

I read article twice and

I read article twice and couldn't see a race mentioned, but some people don't need to see it in writing to be racist do they? I don't care what color they are.....I have to travel Gordon Highway occasionally and don't want anyone traveling the same road with me that's going to be that STUPID! I say...go park on a long dirty road and use your gun on yourself and leave the rest of us alone. C'mon world...get a grip.

A 'jackfruitpaper' is a black

A 'jackfruitpaper' is a black hole for intelligence and insight, as well as for goodwill toward paler humans.

GNIPGnop the angry racist

GNIPGnop the angry racist person has it all figured. Why didn't you call The ODE a racist for his comment? Forget the I did not mentioned a race B.S. Everyone know from your prior posts what you were referring to. Just too much of a coward to say it.

Colcamp, please tell me it

Colcamp, please tell me it was just a typo on the verb "know", line 3 of your 4:18 comment. Please. I'm starting a quick trip into decompensation over having to read Ebonics piled on top of being forced to hear it virtually everywhere I go.

@Bubba442, nothing personal

@Bubba442, nothing personal just a term taken from some of the milsurp forums I hang out on. If you take a Mosin Nagant 1891/30 and put on a scope and aftermarket scope you have bubba'd it. I remember when a "Gator" truck was a 2 wheel drive with big mud tires on the back of it. Now the jackfruit definition was googled!

Well colcamp you must not

Well colcamp you must not read my posts because i'm not the one spouting off about the angry balck man in 90% of my posts. jackfruit does it in every post. I don't respond to every racist post black or white because I don't have the time. I responded to jackfruit's because thats all he EVER posts.I don't like Obama and it has nothing to do with race. I have voted for black democrats in the past. If I say anything abot Obama though I am a racist. I don't ecpect you to understand my point of view but that's your burden not mine. I try to see someone elses point of view even if I still disagree with them I don't go off on a rant about them being an angry white or black person. I'm not sure what you are referring to when you say I am a coward to say something. I am no coward and I will say what I believe when I post. I think jackfruit is a racist and he's not the only one. I didn't know it was my job to point out every racist comment. Thanx for the appointment, though I will have to decline the job. With niko, jackfruit, justus, patriciathomas, angiesdad and a few other nutjobs it would just take up to much of my time.

FLAT LUX, " F " you and your

FLAT LUX, " F " you and your Ebonics. I guess you rather hear the educated voices of all of your " Bubba friends"? My point to you GNIPGNOP was, that he can be a racist but why emphasize the " Black " part? I have made it clear that IMHO, the only times race should be mentioned is when searching for a suspect or a missing person. Otherwise it give idiots like FLAT AZZ, a reason to play the " Ebonics" card. I do agree with you that JUSTUS is a baiter, however I refuse to believe that he is Black.

I sure would love to have this POS (White or Black) pull up beside me in his older model blue Chevrolet C-10 or S-10 with silver flames painted on the hood, with large chrome rims and “smoke stack style” exhaust pipes near the back window and point a gun at me!
