MPD responds to motel shooting; suspect captured


First responders converged en masse at the Super Inn on North Columbia Street after someone was shot. The incident occurred around 8:45 Tuesday night.

The victim was rushed to the hospital. Contrary to rumors, however, the wound doesn't appear to be life-threatening, Baldwin2k learned from investigators.

A car chase then ensued up North Columbia Street, and the suspect ultimately was taken into custody near the Putnam County line. According to a Milledgeville Police Department press release: 

"Units were dispatched to the location at 8:48pm in reference to one individual shot. When the first unit arrived, the suspect was fleeing the location in a vehicle and headed northbound on North Columbia Street. Milledgeville units attempted to stop the vehicle, at which time it failed to stop and a vehicle pursuit began. Milledgeville units pursued the suspect vehicle to the Putnam County line where they were able to get the vehicle stopped and the suspect was taken into custody without incident. This is an active and ongoing investigation, and more information will be provided as it becomes available."
