Police are searching for two young black males who robbed and shot a Brundidge man Tuesday night.

According to Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport, a 52-year-old man who lives on Railroad Avenue was visited at his home by the two men on Tuesday.

“They told him they wanted to buy some drugs,” Davenport said. “He told them he didn’t have any and wasn’t into drugs.”

The men later returned to the victim’s home.

Davenport said the victim opened the door and stepped outside to see who had knocked. He found the two men, one of them with a gun. Davenport said the victim turned to run back inside and fell to the ground.

“They demanded his money,” Davenport said, noting that the two men made off with between $700 and $800 that belonged to the victim.

“As he lay on the ground, they shot him in the right leg.”

Davenport said two shots were fired, but only one struck the victim who was treated at the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Davenport said the case is under investigation and police don’t know, at this time, if the incident is related to other crimes in Brundidge.

Anyone with information about the two suspects is asked to call the Brundidge Police Department at (334) 735-3333.
