Officers with the Valdosta Police Department look for evidence in front of a home at 733 Donald Ave. following a shooting Thursday.

VALDOSTA — Authorities are looking for two suspects in connection with the shooting of a Valdosta man.

Courtne Antonio Brown, 22, was shot outside his 733 Donald Ave. residence, at approximately 11:30 a.m. Thursday, said Valdosta Police Lt. Bobbi McGraw.

McGraw said that the victim was in his front yard when a vehicle pulled up and two black males exited.

“The men conversed momentarily, then one man pulled out a handgun and shot multiple times,” McGraw said. “The victim was shot once in the torso.”

Valdosta police and emergency-medical services were dispatched to the scene shortly after the incident was reported. Brown was transported to South Georgia Medical Center. As of Thursday afternoon, he was alive, conscious and alert, McGraw said.

Crime-scene investigators remained on the scene collecting evidence after Brown was taken to the hospital, while officers patrolled the area in search of the offenders’ vehicle.

The offenders remained at large at press time. Police are looking for a hunter green, older model Jeep Grand Cherokee with gray paneling at the bottom and lightly tinted windows.

The vehicle was occupied by two black males, one light skin and one dark skin, McGraw said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to contact the VPD at (229) 242-2606 or the 24-hour Crime Tip Line at (229) 293-3091.
