PELHAM, Ga. (WALB) - A man was shot in the leg Tuesday night on Mize Street in Pelham, according to Pelham Police Chief Nealie McCormick.

Ricky Davis was saved on the scene by a police officer who stopped his blood loss before he was airlifted to a Tallahassee hospital, McCormick said.

McCormick said they received the call just before 11 p.m. Tuesday.

The shooting appears to have started as a domestic dispute between Tancy Brown, 44, and Ricky Davis, 47. Somehow, a juvenile got involved and Davis wound up getting shot in the leg, explained McCormick.

McCormick told WALB that Davis collapsed about 200 yards away.

Police said they do have a suspect but have not released any further information at this time.

WALB will update this story when we receive more information.
