Teen wounded in shooting

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie man was hospitalized with what was described as a non-life-threatening wound following a Wednesday afternoon shooting in Northwest Moultrie.

Darren Huntley, 18, was shot once while he was in the area near C.A. Gray Junior High, Moultrie Police Department Cpl. Dave Underwood said. The shooting occurred between 5:30 p.m.- 6 p.m., and Huntley was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center.

Police do not think there is any connection between the Tuesday shooting and the recent fatal shooting of 27-year-old Anthony Tyshaun Keith.

“We don’t have any reason to believe it’s related to that,” Underwood said.

Officers were given a description of a white vehicle that was seen in the area at the time, he said. Underwood did not release details about the vehicle.

“It’s still early in the investigation,” he said.

Anyone with information can notify police by calling (229) 890-5451. Callers can leave information anonymously if they choose, Underwood said.
