VPD having tough time locating shooter in Wednesday night's shooting

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Valdosta Police still have no suspect or person of interest in Wednesday night's shooting because the victim continues to be uncooperative.

"Unfortunately, the victim in the case is uncooperative and is not cooperating with the investigation," explained Valdosta Police Department Lieutenant Aaron Kirk.

22 year-old Charles Powell was found in a blue Oldsmobile with a gunshot wound to the groin around 10 p.m. Wednesday night in the 1300 block of West Savannah Avenue.


"According to some of the people investigators talked to, they believe it stemmed from an earlier altercation in the week," said Kirk.

Powell claims he was shot while walking in the 800 block of Nardo Street. 
Police say a friend of Powell's was trying to drive him to the hospital, but the car, the blue Oldsmobile which Powell was found in, broke down. The friend took off and left Powell in the car and called 911. 

Kirk said it's aggravating for police when suspects or witnesses are not willing to cooperate.

"I think that's the most frustrating part, when you have a victim or witnesses that don't want to cooperate; don't want to tell you what happened," Kirk pointed out.

If you have any information in this case, call Valdosta Police at 229-293-3091 to remain anonymous.
