Drive-by shooting sends young man to the hospital

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A drive-by shooting on Lawyers Lane in Columbus sends a young man to the hospital.

Police say the 18 year old victim was able to make it to a nearby friend's house where they called an ambulance.

The victim was hit in the leg and he is expected to recover.

People who live nearby told police they also heard shots fired in the area late last night.

"We were all in the house. I just came inside and saw a lot of police, so I started asking what happened to someone I know. I feel bad. I just want to know if everything is okay," says neighbor Courtney Ferguson.

The victim told police he didn't see where the bullet came from and he doesn't know who shot him.

Detectives are currently reviewing evidence and attempting to develop a suspect.
