Daily Staff Report

After fleeing the scene of a shooting Saturday night in White Post, the suspect, John Archie Tigney, 65, was arrested at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, according to the Clarke County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to a shooting at 9:16 p.m., Saturday in the 100 block of Double Toll Gate Road in White Post. Upon arrival, a victim was found with gunshot wounds to his lower leg, but he refused medical attention, according to a news release sent out on Sunday.
