Early morning shooting at College Hill Courts
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- Chattanooga Police were dispatched to 1232 Cypress Street Court on shots fired early Sunday morning around 12:40. Upon their arrival, they located evidence of shots fired, but no victim.
A short time later, officers were notified by Erlanger Medical Center that a party with two gunshot wounds had shown up at the E.R. by personal vehicle.
The victim, Robert Gill, age 20, told initial officers that he had been shot somewhere in Coolidge Park by unknown suspects, but a conflicting story was given by the female who took the victim to the hospital. She advised investigators that she picked up Gill at the corner of Grove Street and Riverfront Parkway.
Gill did finally advise the Major Crimes investigator that he was indeed shot inside College Hill Courts Housing Development by unknown suspects.
According to Erlanger medical staff, Gill's injuries are non-life threatening.
Investigators are continuing to follow up on leads and this case is pending.
