BRUNSWICK, GA (WTOC) -

Brunswick police officers were dispatched at about 8:36 p.m. Monday to the 1700 block of Albany Street on a report of a fight in progress.

A black male at the intersection of Albany Street and K Street had been shot. He told officers that he was standing in the parking lot of McIntyre Court Public Housing area, when he heard what sounded like gunshots. 

He was shot in the groin area by one of the discharged rounds. He was transported by a Medical Squad to the Southeast Georgia Medical Center, (Brunswick Campus) for treatment. His injury does not appear to be life-threatening.

While officers were interviewing the victim at the hospital, a second victim, also a black male arrived at the emergency room with a superficial gunshot wound to his head area, according to Brunswick police.
