VALDOSTA – A Valdosta man has died after being shot early Tuesday morning in what police are describing as a drug-related incident.

The Valdosta Police Department has not yet released the name of the victim, but he was shot multiple times at a residence in the 700 block of East Jane Street at approximately 3 a.m.

“When officers arrived on scene, they found a victim, male subject, who had been shot multiple times,” Childress said. “He was taken to South Georgia Medical Center. He is in critical condition right now, and we are praying for him.”

Crime scene technicians responded to the scene and have developed what Childress described as “critical evidence” which could lead to identifying the suspect. Childress also said detectives are also investigating the possibile involvment of more than one offender.

“This was an isolated incident. The house was targeted for a specific reason, and we believe it to be drug-related,” Childress said.
