VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police were staying tight lipped Monday about leads they had in the case of a man shot in the buttocks over the weekend.

28 year old James Bivins was shot once in the buttocks.

When officers responded to South Georgia Medical Center to speak with Bivins, they said he told them that he was in the parking lot of Andy's Wings and Things at 810 Old Statenville Rd. around 3 a.m. and someone else that he didn't know started firing shots and that's when he was hit.

But, as of Monday evening police were still trying to figure out if Bivins was the intended target.

"We don't know if this person was an intended target or just happened to be a bystander," explained Valdosta Police Department Cpt. Bobbi McGraw. "We do have some leads on the case. Right now, due to investigating purposes, we're not going to discuss the leads that we have."

Bivins had since been released from the hospital as of Monday and was recovering. Police did not believe his injury to be life threatening.

As always, if you have any information about this crime or any other crime call Valdosta Police at 229-293-3091.
