The McMinn County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a man showed up to a local hospital with a gunshot wound.

Gregory Williams told investigators he was on his way home from work Tuesday evening around 5pm when he stopped at the County Road 172 overpass on Interstate 75 to urinate.

That’s when Williams says an unidentified person in a small black car drove up and shot him in the chest. He is expected to survive his injuries.

McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy says Williams was not able to provide any additional suspect description and his office is investigating the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the McMinn County Sheriff’s Office.
