Moultrie man beaten with gun

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie man reported being pistol whipped Saturday in an incident with a man who threatened to kill him.

Tony Stamper, 24, told police that at about 1:30 p.m. he drove a relative to the 200 block of Fourth Avenue Southeast. When he got there, he saw a male acquaintance who ran to the car with a gun and made threats, including threatening to kill him.

At some point, Stamper reported, the man suddenly started hitting him in the head with the gun. He was joined by three other men whom Stamper did not know by name who also started beating him.

Stamper recounted the episode to a Moultrie Police Department officer at Colquitt Regional Medical Center, where he sought treatment for his injuries.
