A Metter man was wounded Wednesday in a shooting incident on North Trapnell Street, Metter Police Chief Dennis Nelson said.
Mike Mosley, 40, suffered several gunshot wounds in the upper torso during an altercation that was a result of an earlier conflict, Nelson said.
Metter police responded to North Trapnell Street around 8 p.m. after receiving a call that a person had been shot.
“Upon arrival, officers located the victim. … Mosley was found to have several gunshot wounds,” Nelson said. “He was transported to the airport by emergency medical personnel where he met a medical helicopter.”
Mosley was airlifted to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, where he was admitted. Mosley’s condition was not available Thursday afternoon.
“We are following up on several leads at this time,” Nelson said. “It is possible that the shooting was
related to an earlier altercation that day. We know there are several witnesses to this shooting and are asking for the public to step forward and contact us so we can get the shooter off the streets and in custody.”
Anyone with additional information on the shooting is asked to contact Investigator Justin Wells at (912) 685-2190 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All calls will remain confidential, Nelson said.
