The suspect in a Saturday afternoon shooting was denied bond Monday.
Liberty County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Doug Snider said an altercation that occurred earlier Saturday at a home on Holmestown Road led to the shooting of Brad Covington. Snider said Nathaniel Greeen is the suspect.
The shooting took place shortly before 5 p.m. When sheriff’s deputies arrived, they found Covington suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Covington was airlifted to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, where he underwent surgery Saturday and Sunday. Snider was told by medical personnel that Convington is expected to recover.
Greene was detained by deputies at the intersection of Holmestown Road and East Oglethorpe Highway. Greene lives near where the shooting occurred.
Snider said the weapon reportedly used in the shooting was later recovered.
Greene, who is currently being housed at the Liberty County Jail, made a first court appearance Monday. Detective Christopher Reed appeared in front of Magistrate Judge Jerry Morris and obtained seven aggravated-assault warrants, a warrant for cruelty to a child in the third degree (in which Greene reportedly allowed a child to witness a forcible felony crime) and a warrant for possession of a firearm during the commission of certain felonies.
