MOULTRIE — A man who was shot when he allegedly kicked in the front door at a house on Second Avenue Southeast Wednesday has been released from the hospital and charged.
Michael Sharrod Daniels, 21, of 1024 14th St. S.E., was charged with burglary and probation violation.
Moultrie Police Investigations Commander Alfonzo Cook said an officer received a call about 1:18 a.m. Wednesday about a burglary at a house on Second Avenue Southeast. The officer spoke with Tamika Seay, who stated someone had kicked open her front door.
Seay told the officer she had been the victim of a burglary March 12, and she had purchased a firearm since then to protect herself. She said she grabbed the gun and fired it when the man kicked open her door.
Seay told the officer she was not sure if she had hit the burglar, Cook said. A bullet was found inside the furniture, but no blood was found.
Cook said the officer was called to Colquitt Regional for a gunshot victim about eight minutes after he first arrived at the house. The officer met with Daniels, who allegedly stated he could not give a location as to where he was shot. Officers later linked him to the burglary.
