CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Chattanooga Police are investigating the latest shooting in the city, this one a mid-morning drive-by in the 1800 block of Citico Avenue.
The victim, 21-year-old Jeremiah Hicks, was shot multiple times. He was transported to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.
