Last night, 23 year old Mayor Chris Wright of Dawson was shot several times in an apparent robbery. Reports indicate his mother was also a victim, though it is Wright who remains in critical condition. WALB reports:
Mayor Wright was taken to Phoebe Putney hospital in Albany. Mayor Wright’s aunt, Ann Smalls, says that Wright’s mother was also injured. She said Wrights mother was tied up during the ordeal.
“We are very upset, we are very hurt that such an innocent person can be done like this, said Smalls.
“I’m sorry. I feel sorry for the family, I love y’all very much and we’re praying for you,” a neighbor of Mayor Wright said.
Please keep Wright, his mother, the rest of their family and friends, and the people of Dawson in your prayers.
