Georgia Sheriff Shoots Woman in Stomach

Cops: Ga. Sheriff Refuses to Talk After Shooting Woman in Stomach

On Sunday evening, a Georgia sheriff allegedly shot a woman in the stomach inside a model home in Lawrenceville, Ga. Police said Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill “refused to cooperate” when investigators arrived on the scene. He still hasn’t been arrested or questioned. Hill and the woman, identified by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as a 43-year-old real estate agent named Gwenevere McCord, were the only two in the model home at the time of the shooting and were apparently acquaintances.

McCord was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she remains in critical condition. “She’s not able to give any information due to her condition,” police Sgt. Brian Doan told WSB-TV. After calling the shooting in just after 5:30 pm Sunday, Hill reportedly refused to cooperate or give statement to responding Gwinnett police officers.

As of Monday afternoon, he still hadn’t given a statement to police and has not been arrested.
