A 22-year-old Glynn County man arrived at the Brunswick hospital with several gunshot wounds shortly after midnight Tuesday, and police are trying to determine who shot him.
Davonnis Kemon Johnson was transported early Tuesday via helicopter from Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick Campus to UF Health Hospital in Jacksonville, where he remained Wednesday in critical condition, said Brian Scott, Chief of Staff for the Glynn County Police Department.
Johnson arrived at SGHS’s emergency room around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, police said. He had been shot four times in the chest, abdomen and right arm, police said.
Johnson told police he was shot while walking near 9th and Norwich streets in the Arco community, Police said. Johnson told police he was aware of no enemies who would want to shoot him.
In the SGHS emergency room, Johnson told police that he flagged down a stranger, who picked him up and drove him to the hospital, the police report said. However, police later talked to a house mate, who said Johnson came running up to their residence in the 1800 block of Fourth Street, several blocks from Norwich and 9th streets, the report said.
The two men then flagged down a friend with a vehicle, who drove Johnson the hospital, the report said.
Anyone who heard gunfire around midnight Tuesday is asked to call the county police department’s criminal investigation division at 912-554-7802, or Silent Witness hotline at 912-264-1333.
