Tallahassee Police officers responded to 1492 Nashville Drive last night at approximately 4:50 PM after receiving a call about a person who had been shot. As officers arrived, they located victim Joseph Hines laying in the yard and suspect Sam Conyers standing nearby.

The investigation determined the two men were involved in a disagreement over the victim’s bicycle. Mr. Hines was attempting to retrieve his bicycle from the Conyers yard when Conyers retrieved a “sawed-off” shotgun from within his residence. Mr. Hines attempted to walk away and Conyers shot him. The victim received non-life threatening injuries to both legs and was transported to TMH. Conyers was arrested.

Arrested: Sam Conyers, black male
Charges: Attempted Murder, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Possession of a Short Barreled Rifle

    I think it's funny that you guys go on and on about race and yes the victim is a white man, shot by a black man for leaving his bicycle in his front yard!!! REALLY???!!! Who cares what it was over, this man may never walk again! Most of you on here are inconsiderate and plain stupid!!!!

    Can't believe people now days. Almost everything is about race. Here is two peoples lives that will never be the same over a mistake. Joe-Joe was a good guy do anything he could for a person. Sam had his moments but so do we all. My heart goes out to Joe-Joe and Sams family. This was a huge mistake that everybody is putting into racism. Did ANYONE think maybe just maybe it is what it is. Always got to be color, drugs, or alcohol. If you can't think of nothing else. Oh well they are trailer park trash. And who says racism is dead!!!!!

    Mr. Conyers, let this be a lesson to you. "Sawed off shotgun," or not, your round of choice should be either a rifled slug, or 00buckshot! Word, you birdshot punk!! You want to devastate a punk in his skin you do not go with bird shot! Do your kids know what you look like when you do something like a bonehead? They do now, mister!!!!! Word!

    Sounds like two drunks/druggies to me. Charged with attempted murder? I think if he intended to kill, he would have hit somewhere other than the legs. He just wanted to stop him from taking the bike.

    Black, white, blue, green or yellow - the stupidity is the same everywhere. It doesn't matter what "man oh man" meant, it is what it is, figure it out.
