Arrest made in Valdosta shooting from 2 weeks ago

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Valdosta Police Officers responded to a shooting report on the evening of July 9, in the 1600 block of Fresno Street.

They found a man shot in the shoulder, but did not find the shooter.

An anonymous tip led them the start looking at Darius Hollis, 24.  VPD put out a report in the National Crime Center, and they located him in North Florida last week.

He was arrested, and returned to Lowndes County Thursday.

"The Valdosta Police Department is very grateful to the citizens who provided information which assisted detectives in identifying the offender," said Lieutenant Adam Bembry or the Valdosta Police Department. "VPD's investigators have been working tirelessly to identify and put the offenders of the multiple shootings in jail before they have the chance to harm anyone else."
