Police continue search for carjacker
Police found a car Saturday that they say was involved in a shooting and carjacking in Brunswick last week, and the search continues for a suspect.

A silver, two-door Toyota Solara with green lettering on the rear windshield was found at 1 a.m. Saturday parked in a tow-away zone at King & Prince Seafood, at 1 King and Prince Blvd., in Brunswick, according to Brunswick Police Lt. Wan Thorpe.

Police responded just after midnight Aug. 29 to the 1000 block of Gordon Street after a man, whom police did not identify except to say he was in his 30s, reported he had been beaten, shot and had his car stolen.

The man told police he was getting into the Solara after having a conversation with someone, and a masked man entered the car from the passenger door.

The masked man reportedly struck the man's head with an unknown object, then shot him in his abdomen when the victim resisted. After the victim left the vehicle, the suspect reportedly drove away.

Emergency medical officials immediately took the man to the emergency room at the Brunswick hospital at Southeast Georgia Health System, where he remained in stable condition Tuesday, Thorpe said.

Police have not disclosed the caliber of the handgun used to shoot the driver.

They have also not released the identity of the victim or the suspect.
