Columbia County investigators examine the scene of a shooting in Evans. An ex-boyfriend was shot by a woman who lived in the home after he fought with another man at the residence.

Dennis Wombles, 33, was shot in the buttocks after he went to the Evans home of Amber Roese Ford, 31, at about 2:15 p.m., according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

Ford was at her home at 1133 Highmoor Lane with Brian Frantom, 39, of Augusta. Initial reports indicate that Frantom was at the home to work on a computer, according to Morris. Wombles arrived and began fighting with Frantom. He assaulted Frantom and argued with Ford, according to Morris.

During the fight, Ford shot Wombles in the buttocks with a handgun, Morris said.

Wombles was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where his condition has not been released.

Ford and Frantom are in police custody and are being questioned, Morris said. No one has been charged in the incident.

It could have been worse

Wombles could have been facing the other way when she shot him. Ouch....

Do you see reports of "drugs", beyond big busts, in any newspaper? It is a widespread problem affecting every community in America, and the papers would be loaded with incidents if all that happened were reported on.

My take on the senario...

Brian the Comcast internet guy comes to replace Amber's modem and set up her internet connection.

Dennis, who loves Amber so much that he can't live without her, shows up to beg her to come back to him, and lo and behold!, there's some guy sitting at her computer while she's in the kitchen cleaning up the lunch dishes.

Yet again, Dennis can't control his outraged and irrational green-eyed monster and he jumps on Brian the Comcast guy and starts clobbering him. Amber hears the ruckus, and based on past experience with Dennis the Demon-Possessed ex from whom she hopes to escape with her life, she picks up the pistol on the table by her chair in the den for just such an occasion and heads off to rescue Brian the Comcast guy.

Her arrival diverts Dennis the Demon-Possessed's attention from Brian the Comcast guy and he starts haranguing Amber, who had more than enough of Dennis the D-P long, long before today's fracas. She raises the pistol toward Dennis the D-P, who correctly assesses his peril and turns toward the door, shouting threats and deprecations all the while.

Amber the Stalwart takes Dennis the D-P at his word, assesses her danger from his threats as imminent, and zings him one in his butt to convey her seriousness and put him out of action without actually sending him off permanently to answer for his rash stupidity.

Dennis the D-P gets a brief stay at GRU to contemplate how much he really wants Amber, a woman quite willing to shoot him, in his life as a permanent fixture rather than as a disturbing memory.

Amber the Stalwart gets a ride to the hoosegow as a reward for her prompt action to save Brian the Comcast guy and ensure her future safety. There she contemplates moving to Thailand until such time that she hears someone else has dispatched Dennis the D-P to his eternal reward.

Brian the Comcast guy rides along with Amber the Stalwart, answers everyone's questions 12 times and finds himself cooling his heels for far longer than he likes with people who smell funny and peer at him as if he were a giant hamburger. His wonders how loud he actually can scream and if, when he gets sprung, he still will have a job and a family.

love fake [filtered word] people
Unpublished

TRUTH more so goes like this....
BRIAN , the addict, was over there being the junky pervert that he is, being the dope whore that she is, who's been [filtered word] around with Dennis mind and heart since he met her....
Brian got his [filtered word] beat for being the lying two faced msn that he is who has done this with several of Dennis friends and even current girlfriends, while portraying himself to be Dennis s friend at the same time, Brian got what he deserved,
This demon possessed BLUE EYED Dennis, yes was hurt in rage, and yes lost his temper, , which he had every right to. Maybe he shouldn't take it to the extent that he does, but when he loves some one, and it's hardddddddd to accept the fact thatthe person you love more than anything is a dope whore...painful, and sometimes impossible to see it when it's something you wished wasn't. So yeah, Mr know it all, trying to fabricate [filtered word] n make yourselves look good.
Get off the [filtered word], stop lying to yourself and the world trying to make Dennis look like an insane psychopath.... in my opinion, Dennis could have lost his life, his kids a father, and his parents a son. All bc of a lying dope whore

The truth is that Dennis

The truth is that Dennis needs to learn how to pick better friends and stop this ridiculous drama that nearly got him killed.

What a loser.

And, of course, none of it is HIS fault. Sure.

Brian the Comcast guy, try Brian the perverted drugdealing meth addict, and Amber the stalwart more like Amber the dope whore who's fine this to him with several of Dennis friends including his own blood. Don't you people get tired of living a lie.

I take it personal bc it is [filtered word] personal and your such an idiot, you people are dumb, I'm on the verge of snapping, bc obviously you think I don't know what the hell I'm taking about. I don't call people names just to talk [filtered word], I don't talk [filtered word], if it comes from my mouth it's a fact. I know Dennis better than anyone, and I know Brian oh very quite well, I may have not ever met Amber in person, but doubt me if you want when I say I know [filtered word] I state.don't under estimate me. You think it's funny to mockingly humiliate this situation, claim you don't know either of these people personally, well guess what, I know Dennis all so well to know that by the things you've stated in your theory that your full of [filtered word]. Omg, you people today are really testing my patience on top of everything I already got going on........ play dumb, that's what you people are supposed to be is fake.
