CAIRO, Ga. (WALB) - The Cairo Police Department (CPD) said Douglas “Moonk” Broomfield turned himself into police Wednesday after a man was shot early Tuesday morning.

The post, which has now been taken down, said officers responded to a shots fired call in the 900 block of Calvary Road SW just before 7:30 a.m.

While on their way to the scene, CPD said E-911 received a call from a man saying he had been shot and was driving himself to the hospital.

Once officers arrived, police said witnesses told them there was an argument between the victim and Broomfield and that Broomfield fired a shot at the victim while he was in his vehicle.

The victim was at Grady General Hospital when CPD met with him and he identified Broomfield as the person who shot him, according to police.

The Facebook post said that police obtained warrants for Broomfield on the charges of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

An investigator with CPD told WALB News 10 that Broomfield turned himself in around 9:20 a.m. Wednesday morning.

We have reached out to the Grady County Jail to request an updated copy of Broomfield’s mugshot.
