Around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a shooting at Hudson Dockett on South Fry Street.
They say Dwayne Brown, 26, said he was shot in the rear while walking through the housing complex.
He was rushed to South Georgia Medical Center and later released for non-life threatening injuries.
Some people we talked to say a lack of core values is the root of violence like this.
"They haven't made a positive connection to those things that are really important-- family, faith, friends," said Alma Williams, of Valdosta.
Police say they have limited information at this time.
They say the victim is not cooperating with authorities.
