Hope he quickly recovers with no permanent injury.

I wonder if he was armed. If not, then I hope he will start carrying.

News 3 crews happened to be nearby and saw police activity at both Foxes Cinema and the 30th Avenue Package Store.

When we went over to investigate, we learned from witnesses that the shooting happened in the back parking lot of Foxes Cinema, an adult entertainment store. When our crew went back behind the store, they saw fresh blood on the concrete, which witnesses told us belonged to Greene.

Witnesses say he then got into his car and drove over to the 30th Avenue Package Store and those claims are backed up by surveillance video that News 3 obtained from the package store, which is time stamped at 4:25 p.m.
"He's a regular customer, he comes sometimes two times a week, sometimes three times a week. He's a very good guy. He always buys good stuff. He's never given me a problem. I really wonder why people do like that," says Harish Bherida, Owner of the 30th Avenue Package Store.
"Where exactly were you shot? What was the location?"

We then asked representative Greene if he was parked behind Foxes Cinema when he was shot, as witnesses said. He said yes, he was.

"At Foxes Cinema? In the parking lot of Foxes Cinema. Were you visiting there or some other business in the area?"

He said he had been to Foxes Cinema on previous occasions, but not Thursday. Instead he was visiting the 30th Avenue Package Store where he frequently buys lottery tickets. Ironically, Greene says he was carrying several thousands of dollars in donations to the American Red Cross for storm relief, which the robber did not get.

Thank God we got that cleared up! Let me paraphrase:
" I have been to the porn shop many times but today I was at the package store gambling again."

And this guy is a state representative ? He really needs to run for US Congress.

Shot during a robbery, 911 called, visited hospital but the police and Sheriff's office is unaware of the incident? Uh huh
From my last link:
The store owners rush to get him a chair, sit him down in the middle of the store and then pick up the phone to call police.
I will say if he was only going to liquor store and not the adult cinema then why did he have to get back in his car behind the cinema and drive to the liquor store?

Starting to sound like it might be a case of Glock leg.....I just hope not.

Well, he lied about where he was shot until confronted about the location, which is when he admitted the location. My guess is he did not want anybody to know he visits a porn shop, since he is a politician. I imagine that sort of thing does not play well with conservative voters in Cuthbert, Georgia.

Why was he parked in the back? To hide his car or to meet someone? After the story completely comes out he might not run again.

Politicians have to maintain the "pure as the driven snow" persona otherwise they lose their ability to tell us how to live our lives. Just another pig politician.
