Man seriously injured in Monday shooting


The Grip is on scene at Ma & Pa’s Grocery on Meriwether Street, the location of an earlier shooting that left one man seriously wounded.
Lt. Tony Thomason, of the Griffin Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division, said the unidentified victim sustained a single gunshot wound to the upper body.
“He was taken – possibly to be flown out – for medical treatment,” he said.
The incident allegedly followed an altercation between the victim and a number of other individuals.
“What we’ve got is a shooting in the back parking lot of Ma & Pa’s Grocery. Witnesses have identified three black male suspects,” Thomason said. “There was a dispute between the victim and the three suspects which led to the shooting. It wasn’t random.”
– The Grip will remain on scene and report additional information as it becomes available.
