Statesboro Police Department (SPD) officers heard gunfire in the area of Pine Street in the City of Statesboro at 11:31 pm, Saturday, June 25, 2022.

SPD 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 Street 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 tips@statesboroga.gov.
