Shooting follows fight over woman

A Mesena man was shot after an altercation over a woman in Thomson on Sunday, authorities said.

Thomson Police Chief Joseph D. Nelson said Zorinskey Euwon Mathis, 23, of the 600 block of Boulevard Drive in Thomson, was taken into custody about 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The state parolee was charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He remained jailed in the McDuffie County Law Enforcement Center in Thomson on Monday.

Mr. Mathis is accused of shooting Rodrico A. Murray, of the 3200 block of Mesena Road, once in the chest with a small-caliber handgun, Chief Nelson said Sunday night. Mr. Murray was taken to the emergency room of McDuffie Regional Medical Center in Thomson. He later was transferred to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he underwent surgery late Sunday. A spokeswoman said Tuesday that Mr. Murray was not listed as a patient in the hospital's directory.

Mr. Murray played football at Thomson High and was a member of the 2002 Class AAAA state championship team, Thomson police Sgt. Willie Williams said.

Two other people were arrested, accused of refusing to cooperate with police as they sought the suspect. Chief Nelson said Brian Morris Walker, 28, and Chisa Shivika Shields, 25, of the 500 block of Bussey Avenue in Thomson, were each charged with obstruction of a law enforcement officer.
