Police say a Glynn County man wanted in connection with the shooting early Monday of another local man should be considered armed and dangerous.
Glynn County Police issued warrants Wednesday afternoon for Christopher Lee, 28, charging him with one count each of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, said Brian Scott, the police department’s Chief of Staff. Police allege Lee shot Wayne Honester, 32, who remained Wednesday in critical condition at UF Heath Hospital in Jacksonville.
Any who knows of Lee’s whereabouts is asked to call the Glynn-Brunswick 911 Communications Center at 912-544-3645, the county police department’s investigations division at 912-554-7802 or Silent Witness Hotline at 912-264-1333.
Honester arrived in the emergency room at Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick hospital around 12:30 a.m., the county’s second gunshot victim in a week’s time and under circumstances similar to the first shooting incident. Honester was driven to SGHS by companions after being shot in the upper right chest. Honester was then flown by helicopter to UF Health Hospital in Jacksonville.
On Nov. 27, at around 12:30 a.m., a 22-year-old Glynn County man arrived at SGHS’s emergency room after being shot four times, police said. Struck by gunfire in the chest, abdomen and twice in the right arm, Davonnis Kemon Johnson was flown to UF Health in Jacksonville in critical condition. Johnson remains hospitalized.
Police received conflicting accounts of that incident. Police said Johnson initially told investigators that a passerby drove him to the hospital after he was shot near Norwich and 9th Street in the Arco community, according to a report. However, his housemate said Johnson suddenly came running up to the residence they shared on 4th Street, several blocks away.
The housemate flagged down a friend, who drove the wounded Johnson to the hospital. Police are still searching for the shooter in this incident.
Investigators do not believe the shootings are connected, Scott said.
“These shootings are not related, but the investigation does not support these incidents being random shootings either,” Scott said.
Anyone with information on either shooting is asked to call the police department’s investigations division at 912-554-7802, or Silent Witness Hotline at 912-264-1333.
