SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- A 19-year-old Savannah State University student says he fired in self defense when he shot and wounded a fellow student on campus last month.
Devon McIntosh told the Savannah Morning News in a jailhouse interview that he shot 22-year-old Quinton Winfield after he came to McIntosh's campus apartment and began punching him in the head.
McIntosh said Winfield was angry that McIntosh had stood up for a woman Winfield had insulted. He said he kept a handgun in his bedroom.
Winfield was shot twice, in the arm and torso, Nov. 21 and treated at a local hospital. Police arrested McIntosh when they found him hiding in the trunk of his car.
McIntosh remains jailed in Chatham County on aggravated assault charges.
