Man stable after being shot in chest

Police: Family member shot him in self-defense, not charged

A man was shot during a domestic situation Sunday evening, and he is in stable condition in a Savannah hospital, according to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office.
At 7:32 p.m., deputies and EMS were dispatched to a home in the 1100 block of Lee Road for a shooting.
Upon arrival, deputies and EMS personnel found Robbie Strickland suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. Strickland was flown to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, Sheriff Lynn Anderson said.
Investigators interviewed family members who were present at the time of the shooting and others with knowledge of the situation. Based on the investigation, it appears as the shooting resulted from a domestic dispute that turned violent, Anderson said.
At this time, no charges have been filed against the family member who shot Strickland. The preliminary findings of the investigation point toward the shooting being an act of self-defense, the sheriff said
This case is still active, and anyone with information concerning it should contact Investigator Jared Akins at (912) 764-1789 or submit an anonymous tip to tips@bullochsheriff.com.
