Man recovering after being shot in the face

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Bullet holes and blood stains remind those living in one King George apartment of a Saturday afternoon tragedy.

The residents, who want to remain anonymous, opened their door and found Joe Fincher, 25, shot in the head.

"It was actually a single shot through his head. It looked like it was coming from the face all the way through his head," said the resident.

Police say Fincher had just returned home when someone in a parked car got out and started shooting at him before taking off. Fincher was able to make his way up the stairs and landed at a neighbor's front door.

"We couldn't let him die without trying to help him. I grabbed a towel, put it on his head, and applied some pressure."

Minutes later, more help arrived and Joe Fincher was quickly taken to the hospital. Police are still trying to determine the motive behind the shooting. They're also still looking for the shooter. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637). In the body type, include "CStop2020" plus the tip. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
