Christopher Bush

One man is in the hospital and another in jail after a shooting at Richmond Hill Apartments early Sunday.


Deputies were called to the 500 block of Richmond Hill Road to investigate gunshots around 1:45 a.m. When they got there, they found Clinton Coleman, 26, with gunshot wounds to his upper chest and arm, Richmond County Sheriff’s Lt. Robbie Silas said.

Coleman was taken to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he is stable, Silas said.

Deputies arrested Christopher Bush, 24, on charges including aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and criminal damage to property in the second degree.

Bullets penetrated the wall of an apartment where a woman and a child were inside, but neither were injured, Silas said.

Silas said the trouble started at a nightclub. Both men live in the Richmond Hill complex and continued the argument there, he said.
