Chauncey Georgia,

A Chauncey man shot his own son in the stomach Friday, in a dispute over something in the mailbox. The two live on Bush Ave in an area behind Whal-to-Whal Grocery.

Chauncey Police say that after the shooting, the victim took the gun, struck the father in the head with it, disposed of the firearm in the bushes, then attempted to go to the store to call for help. A passer-by found the victim on a wooded trail leading to the store and called for help.


Chauncey Chief, Chunky Wilkerson, requested the Sheriff's Department to investigate the incident.
