SAVANNAH, GA ( July 17, 2012 ) A man is in serious condition tonight after being shot trying to break up a fight between a group of juveniles.

Police were dispatched to Memorial University Medical Center just after 6:30 pm, after Larry Briggs showed up at the emergency room suffering from a gun shot wound.

The shooting took place in the area of 38th Street and Ash Street. Police interviewed several witnesses who told them that a large group of juveniles were fighting in the street when Briggs attempted to intervene.

Briggs was transported to the hospital by a relative. Police are continuing to look for the shooter at this time.

Anyone with information on the shooting tonight 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.
