Big Apples
According to an incident report filed by Hinesville Police Officer, Kiontaye Miller, two men were shot following a disturbance at a Hinesville nightclub. Miller said the shootings took place Friday morning. Miller said he was patrolling the area and was in the parking lot of the Big Apple located in the 700 block of East Oglethorpe Highway.  In Miller’s report the officer heard what appeared to be gunshots being fired.  When he went to investigate he encountered a man identified as Darious Taylor running stating he had been shot in his leg.

According to the report, Miller said the area was secured by responding officers and emergency medical personnel were dispatched to inspect Taylor’s wound. Luckily, it turned that Taylor was grazed by a bullet on his right thigh according to Chief of Detectives, Capt. Tracey Howard.  

Taylor told Miller he had been walking to his vehicle after leaving the Big Apple and was confronted by a man who was wearing a black shirt.  Taylor told officer Miller the man lifted his shirt pulled out a pistol and began firing. During the shooting several vehicles were struck by gunfire which had been parked in the Huddle House adjacent to the Big Apple.

Howard said another man identified as Corrick K. Odum later showed up at Liberty Regional Medical Center in Hinesville suffering from a gunshot wound which appeared to have struck his hand and lodged into his left arm.

He also sustained a bullet wound to his upper chest. He was later transported to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah where he underwent surgery.  His condition is unknown.

Howard said there was a disturbance in the club shortly after midnight when the shots rang out. He added that a trail of blood was found leading from the club into the parking lot.  “We are still trying to piece together exactly what occurred leading to these men being shot," Howard said. "We do have an unidentified suspect who may have been involved in the shooting and were asking for the public’s help in identifying him.”
