Brunswick police have arrested a man they say is responsible for a shooting in the predawn hours Tuesday on Johnston Street that left another man hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the chest, Capt. Angela Smith said.

Janarvis A. Tillman, 27, remained Tuesday in the Glynn County Detention Center, charged with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime, according to jail records.

Tillman allegedly shot 24-year-old Travis Brice in the chest at around 2:30 a.m., Tuesday, in the 1800 block of Johnston Street. Brice was transported by county EMS workers to Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick hospital, where he remained Tuesday in stable condition, Smith said.

Both men are from Brunswick and they knew each other, Smith said, noting that this was not a random shooting.

Police are still investigating the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call Brunswick detective Carla Futch at 912-279-2641 or Silent Witness 912-267-5516.
