A man was injured on Bohler Rimes Road Sunday in a drive-by shooting, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson.
Deputies responded Sunday around 5 a.m. to East Georgia Regional Medical Center, where a man told them he had been shot.
Victim Trenten Miller, age unavailable, of Metter, told investigators he and a friend had attended a party at Platinum Lounge in Statesboro on Saturday night and stayed there until the lounge closed at 3 a.m. Sunday.
Then, Miller and his friend went to a South Main Street eatery before driving back towards Metter on U.S. 301 South, when he and the friend “stopped on a … dirt road … to speak with several females they had met at Platinum Lounge,” Anderson said.
While the group talked at the Bohler Rimes Road location, “an older model black Ford Explorer allegedly drove by and fired shots at the group,” he said.
Bullets struck Miller on his left wrist and left knee. His friend took him to the hospital, where he was treated for ”non life-threatening injuries,” Anderson said.
Investigators are seeking information regarding the others present during the reported shooting, hoping to locate them for interviews about the incident and possibly identify the suspects, he said.
Anyone with information on the case, who was present during the reported shooting or who can identify the suspects is asked to contact Bulloch County Sheriff’s Inv. Walter Deal at (912) 764-1788, or submit anonymous tips to “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
All calls will remain confidential, he said.
