GA GOP lawmaker recovering after being shot at adult cinema parking lot carrying thousands in cash
A Georgia Republican lawmaker is in recovery after he was robbed and shot at an adult cinema parking lot while he was carrying thousands of dollars in cash.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that State Rep. Gerald Greene (R – Cuthbert) is now recuperating in his own home after being treated at a local hospital for a gunshot wound to the leg that he incurred during an armed robbery.
Greene claims that he had parked outside of the Foxes Cinema in Columbus, GA because he wanted to go into an adjacent liquor store.
Greene also claims that the thief — whom he described to police as “a male about 5 feet 5 inches tall who was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants” — only took his iPhone and was apparently unaware he was carrying a sackful of cash.
As for the money itself, Greene says that it was collected donations to help victims of storms that had ravaged Southern Georgia over the past weekend.
No arrests in the shooting have been made, and police are still searching for the alleged perpetrator.
The aftermath of the shooting was captured on surveillance video. Watch below:
