A shooting on Johnson Ave. in Valdosta Sunday evening left one teenager injured from a gunshot wound to the chest.

According to Valdosta Police Department Lt. Aaron Kirk, a 15-year-old black male was shot in the upper stomach area.

“He’s going to be fine. He was on his way to surgery (at SGMC) and the doctor said the bullet went into his side and didn’t hit anything major,” Kirk said in an interview Sunday.

The teen was able to give a description of his assailant to the police, and Kirk said the young man named who was involved in the altercation was being questioned Sunday night.

“We have a suspect in custody, and it appears that the two were known to each other. However, they are both giving conflicting stories about the events leading up to the shooting,” Kirk said.

No charges have been filed as the investigation is not complete. VPD officers are working to determine the actual events that occurred during the altercation.
