Sheriff's Department Investigating Southport Shooting

Recommended Posts

This morning at approximately 1:28 A.M., the Chemung County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the area of 456 Albert Street in the City of Elmira for a gunshot victim. According to the victim the incident took place in the Town of Southport near the City line.  

Upon further investigation it was learned that 19 year old Tyir D. Dorsey of Elmira had suffered what appeared to be a superficial gunshot wound to the head.  Dorsey was transported to the Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, PA for treatment where he remains in stable condition.  

Investigators believe the shooting incident occurred at a separate unknown location and that Dorsey went to the Albert Street address for assistance. Police say the victim was uncooperative with investigators pertaining to information on where and how he suffered the gunshot wound.
    

The investigation into the matter is continuing. The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Elmira Police Department. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Chemung County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at (607)737-2933 or leave information on the tip web-address located at www.chemungsheriff.net.

At some point, there needs to be some restitution required if you want to obstruct and interfere with the very resources you called upon for assistance.

You'd think so. If "Obstruction of Justice" doesn't already apply, it certainly should.
