Police are investigating the Sunday shooting of an Allenhurst man.
Hinesville Police Department Officer Eric Sink responded to a report of a man who showed up at Liberty Regional Medical Center’s emergency room suffering from gunshot wounds, according to an incident report Sink filed.
When Sink arrived at the emergency room, an employee told the officer that Letorris Boyd, 22, apparently had driven himself in a 1991 Honda Accord to the hospital, walked into the emergency room and told staffers that he had been shot. Boyd told Sink that he had been shot by a man Boyd knew only by his street name. He told the officer the shooting took place somewhere near Main Street, by a Sunoco service station. Boyd would not reveal the alleged shooter’s street name to the officer, nor would he offer a description, but he did say that he had spoken to the assailant earlier on the telephone.
Boyd told Detective Melvin Kesner he had given the man a ride when the alleged assailant reportedly pulled out a gun and shot him four times. Chief of Detectives Maj. Thomas Cribbs said Boyd was shot in his upper right shoulder, left arm, right leg, and one bullet grazed his stomach.
Officers searched the area near the gas station but could not locate any evidence of a shooting or find any witnesses.
Boyd was transported to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, where he underwent surgery for his wounds. He survived the surgery, according to Cribbs, and appears to be doing fine.
