Man shot in city
A 26-year-old Glynn County man remained in critical condition Monday after being shot multiple times Saturday outside a Newcastle Street convenience store.

Police responded at 3:46 p.m. Saturday to A1 Convenience at 3900 Newcastle St. to a report of someone being shot, according to a Glynn County police report.

When they arrived, they found 26-year-old Thomas Dixon with multiple gunshot wounds in his back and arm, according to the report. After being taken to the Brunswick hospital of Southeast Georgia Health System, Dixon was transferred to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, where he was listed in critical condition Monday, according to Glynn County Police Capt. Marissa Tindale.

Police said Dixon was shot in the parking lot of Arco Mini Mart, at 3823 Norwich St., and made his way next door to A1 Convenience before collapsing.

Police arrested 17-year-old Eugene Taylor, also known as Moody, minutes later at his Franklin Avenue home. He was charged with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Tindale did not release the caliber of weapon Dixon was shot with but said it was a handgun.

Taylor was jailed Monday at the Glynn County Detention Center without bond.
