Shooting victim in critical condition

THOMASVILLE — A Thomasville man is charged in a Saturday morning shooting that left the victim hospitalized in critical condition.

Police responded at 2 a.m. Saturday to the 300 block of Hopkins Street to a report of shots being fired. While en route, a 911 dispatcher told officers someone had been shot.

A large number of people and vehicles left the scene as officers arrived, said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department public information officer.

People remaining at the scene guided officers elsewhere on Hopkins. Witnesses said a man who had been shot was transported by private vehicle to Archbold Memorial Hospital.

“Witnesses described a male suspect by the name of Lemoses Carr,” Hampton said. “Witnesses said Carr shot the other man. They said Carr was seen getting into a silver-colored sedan.”

A Thomas County Sheriff’s Office deputy saw the sedan on Hall Road, with Carr as a passenger. After a foot chase, Carr, 28, a Thomasville resident, was taken into custody and transported to the Thomas County Jail.

Carr is charged with aggravated assault in the shooting of the 32-year-old victim.

Hampton said a bullet scathed a bystander at the shooting scene. The woman was treated and dismissed at Archbold.

More information about the incident will be available Monday, Hampton said.
