Someone was shooting off a gun Sunday in the parking lot of a Valdosta chicken restaurant, and a man was hit by a bullet, between 3:00 and 3:30AM.
Valdosta Police officers were dispatched to South Georgia Medical Center where James Bivins, had come into the Emergency Room with a gunshot wound to his lower torso.
Bivins told them the incident happened at Andy's Wings and Things, at 810 Old Statenville Road.
He said someone pulled out a handgun in the parking lot, and fired off several rounds. Officials don't know if the shooting was random, or if someone in particular was the target.
Bivins said a friend drove him to the ER after he realized he had been shot.
Police spoke to several witnesses at restaurant, but so far, the shooter's identity isn't known, and no arrests have been made. No body else was injured and detectives are actively working the case.
