TIFTON, GA (WALB) –A 21 year old Tift County woman is fighting for her life, after someone shot her and left her in the road in a pool of her own blood.
Police say the call originally came in as a traffic accident but once paramedics and deputies arrived and started working on the victim it was obvious she had been shot.
Last night, Dale Graham didn't get much sleep. "It was just amazing, what I seen down there in the road," she said.
Now she can't get those graphic images out of her head."When I seen all that blood I thought she was dead," she said.
Last night around six, she was on her way to the store when she made a shocking discovery on Avondale road. "I couldn't stop right then because I was panicking and shaking so bad,"
And unfortunately, her six year old daughter saw the victim too.That's when Graham went and got help."They threw her out of the car and she was face down in blood," said Graham.
Family members and say the victim, 21-year old Shatara Jefferson had been shot in the head. "I was just shaking and nervous and I wondered who did her like that," said
Police arrested and charged 24 year old Jarrius Fudge with the shooting. Her step-father says she and Fudge had known each other only a few weeks.
Family members and friends are hoping Jefferson is able to overcome her injuries.
Jefferson was initially treated for her injuries at Tift Regional but she was air lifted to another facility for further treatment. I spoke with several family members today and they say Jefferson remains in critical condition.
Fudge is charged with aggravated battery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
