Fitzgerald shooting victim released from hospital


A Fitzgerald teenager shot several times while working at his family's convenience store is back home with his family tonight as the investigation into the brazen attack continues tonight.

Family members say 19-year old Krishna Patel was released from Phoebe Dorminy Hospital last night. Surveillance video shows a gunman walking into the 107 Express Store Monday night and firing at the teen behind the counter. One bullet grazed the back of Patel's head. He was also shot in his right arm and left hand.

The suspected gunman got away in a white semi-truck. A Fitzgerald Police officer saw the truck yesterday morning and Ben Hill County deputies took a man into custody. He's still being held, but deputies have not filed charges yet.
