Man pistol whipped, thrown from vehicle and shot


The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that occurred this morning on Highway 16 in the vicinity of Wani Road.
The male victim sustained a single gunshot wound to the head.
Prior to being shot, the victim was a passenger in a vehicle where he was allegedly attacked before being thrown to the roadside.
“Yes, he was pistol whipped. That’s what he was saying when we first arrived at the scene,” said Sheriff Wendell Beam.
The vehicle then circled around and returned to the victim’s location where he was shot.
“He (the victim) was conscious and alert and was able to talk to investigators,” Beam said.
Due to adverse weather conditions to the north, the victim was transported by air to the trauma unit of Macon Medical Center.
The Grip will post updates as additional information becomes available.
