Aggravated assault under investigation


The Griffin Police Department investigation of a Monday night shooting remains ongoing.

Officers of the GPD Uniform Patrol Division were dispatched at approximately 8:42 p.m. to the Dollar General located at 1665 W. McIntosh Road in reference to a report of a person shot.

One man – Jonah Wilson – sustained a gunshot wound to the right hip. He was reportedly in the area of Sunnyside Pediatrics, located at 1661 W. McIntosh Road, at the time he was shot.

Wilson was initially transported by ambulance to the emergency room of WellStar Spalding Regional Hospital before being transported to Atlanta Medical Center.

Authorities say Wilson’s injuries are non-life threatening.

Investigators from the Criminal Investigation Division and Crime Scene Unit also responded to the scene.

According to Officer Jonathan Fincher, statements were obtained from four witnesses, and evidence – including a half-dozen 9 mm shell casings and one 9 mm – was recovered from the scene.

The window of Sunnyside Pediatrics was also struck by gunfire, but the office was closed and unoccupied.

The investigation into this aggravated assault is active, with leads being followed.
