The Statesboro Police Department is investigating an aggravated assault after shots fired and a female being struck by gunfire Saturday night.
On 6/25/22 at 11:31 P.M., officers patrolling the area of Pine Street in Statesboro heard shots fired in the area. Officers responded and secured the area, being notified shortly afterward that a 20 year old female had been transported to East Georgia Regional Medical Center by private vehicle. The female had been struck by gunfire and was transferred to Memorial in Savannah. She is expected to be released from care today.
Detectives responded and spent several hours processing the scene. The incident took place after a large gathering was dispersed by officers on another street and certain of the participants arrived on Pine St to continue the party. Detectives believe multiple witnesses were present when the shots were fired and are asking for the public’s help in identifying the motive for the shooting and the participants. Anyone with information should contact Senior Detective Jodie Tanner at 912-764-9911 or submit an anonymous tip to email@example.com.
