VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) – A little boy and a woman were both shot in the legs as they ran for cover when shooting started. Some folks in that area tell us they're scared to leave their homes.
26-year-old Lajoyce Williams and nine year old Rajaez Mosley were both shot in the legs Saturday night around 8:30 at a home on Claudia Circle.
"The actual victims were hit as they were running trying to get back in the house," said Valdosta Police Lt. Aaron Kirk.
Williams was visiting from Virginia, Mosley lives in Valdosta. Both the victims were treated at South Georgia Medical Center and released.
"We don't have a suspect name or anything to give out but they are still following up on leads and trying to locate witnesses," said Kirk.
Shots were fired from the intersection of Ricardo Street and Claudia circle towards the house. The suspect got away. The victims told police they couldn't tell who was shooting since it was dark outside.
Police think it could be gang-related. "They're looking into all possibilities that it was and they're investigating every aspect of the case," said Kirk.
As far as police know there was only one shooter. "There was a large party earlier in the day in Valdosta. Arguments started there. They believe it carried over to Claudia Circle in the evening."
One woman who lives near the Hudson Dockett Housing Project says she's often afraid to take her children outside in her neighborhood.
"It's sad that people can't get around on a Saturday and go to the park. You really can't go anywhere any more without looking over your shoulder, just wondering what's going to happen next," said Dorena Jones.
Police are interviewing persons of interest, but have not yet filed any charges. Police are still trying to figure what sparked the argument. If you know anything about the shooting, Valdosta police want you to call them.
