Police are seeking two men for questioning in connection with Wednesday afternoon’s shooting at Selden Park, which left two men with gunshot wounds and a third in jail on unrelated charges, Glynn County Sgt. Brian Scott said Thursday.
Police have released photos of the two men, who are not identified. Anyone with information on the shooting, or the identity of the two men being sought, is asked to call the Glynn County Police Department at 912-554-7802, the Silent Witness hotline at 912-264-1333 or police investigator Hank Scott at 912-279-2919, Scott said.
The shooting occurred about 3 p.m. at the county’s Selden Park, off U.S. Highway 341 across from 4th Street near Brunswick. Police arrived to find 54-year-old Ralph Searcy with a gunshot wound to the face. Searcy was taken by ambulance to Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick campus hospital with non life-threatening injuries, Scott said.
The shooting occurred near a picnic pavilion, where chicken was still cooking on a covered, smoking grill late Wednesday afternoon as police secured the scene with yellow crime scene tape and collected evidence.
Police said Tyriek Brown, 22, of Brunswick, ran from the scene after being shot in the leg. Police dogs were searching woods near the park late into the afternoon. Brown sought treatment for his wound later Wednesday night at the hospital emergency room, where police met with him, Scott said.
A third man at the scene, William Holloway, 36, of Brunswick, was arrested at the scene and charged with possession of a firearm with a convicted felon. Holloway has not been charged with the shootings, police said.
Police said the incident does not appear to be a random shooting. Police, however, have not said the victims knew the shooter, as was erroneously reported in an earlier report of the shooting by The News on Wednesday.
