This was the third shooting incident in three days. The first occurred on Saturday, June 25 on Pine Street, the Monday, June 27 shooting occurred at University Place apartments and there was a third shots fired incident in Park Place apartments on Tuesday, June 28.

The male victim, whose name is being withheld at this time, was later transported to Memorial Health in Savannah where he underwent surgery and is in serious but stable condition as of the time of this release.

Detectives assigned to the case obtained search warrants for the scene of the assault, an apartment where the victim lived located on University Place in Statesboro. The shooting occurred inside of the residence. Crime scene techs processed the apartment for approximately six hours while other detectives conducted interviews and worked other leads.
