One person was injured when an alleged gunman fired a shot at him Thursday night in what police are saying was an attempted robbery.
According to Hinesville Police Assistant Chief, Tracey Howard, the shooting took place around 6:30 at a local eatery on Shaw Road. Howard said a man entered the kitchen of the restaurant and asked the cook “if he knew what time it was.”
Words were exchanged between the cook and the assailant, who allegedly brandished a weapon and fired once at the cook, grazing him over the left eye.
Howard said the man received a non life threatening wound to his head. He was transported to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah.
The assailant was identified as a Black male wearing a ski mask.
