Waycross, GA (WJXT/CNN) - A south Georgia police department is under investigation for allegedly shooting the wrong suspect.
The shooting took place at Garlington Heights apartments in Waycross.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says Waycross police were looking to interview a man about an unsolved killing when it happened.
Officers knocked on a door, were invited inside and told no one was on the second floor of the home.
That's when 26-year-old Andrew Poole emerged from a dark bedroom and was shot in the stomach.
Neighbors were surprised to hear of the shooting.
"From what I know of him out here, he stays to himself. He doesn't bother nobody, never has. So, that's kinda crazy for him to get shot in a situation like that," said neighbor Veronica Cobb.
"That's a good thing. They showing remorse about it, that's a good thing. So I feel like in the end everything's gonna be ok. I mean just human error," said another neighbor, Betty White.
Investigators say Poole was taken to the hospital and is now recovering from the gunshot.
The identity of the shooting officer has not been released.
The shooting is still under review by the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.
