An Eastman man has been shot in an alleged robbery attempt, according to a Dodge County Sheriff’s report.
The report stated that Melvin Watson McCloud (age 24) was allegedly shot by another Eastman man that he was riding with. The two men apparently stopped on Free Gift Church Road and the driver allegedly got a shotgun and demanded money from McCloud. McCloud told the man that he didn’t have any money and an argument ensued and McCloud began to run. That is when he was allegedly shot in both legs by the driver, causing him to fall into a ditch.
McCloud stated that the driver then approached him and continued to demand money and then allegedly struck him in the head with the stock of the shotgun. McCloud managed to make his way to a residence where 911 was called.
