Shooting Crimes

By  | 

A dispute started on Ponderosa Drive late Thursday night.

Police say it ended when Antwan Pearl shot 24-year-old Cedric Hudson. The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he's still recovering.

Investigators don't believe this shooting was gang related.

Brian Childress, Valdosta Police spokesman, says, "Right now it looks like it was simply a dispute. I can tell you that we believe one of the individuals involved was a gang member, but right now our indications show this was just a dispute; it had nothing to do with gangs."

Police say they will continue to increase patrols in the Ponderosa Drive area, and work with crime watch groups to improve neighborhood safety.
