Augusta man says he was shot at while working on vehicle

An Augusta man says he was shot at Wednesday while working in the backyard of a residence.

Approximately 3:51 p.m., deputies responded to the 600 block of Bennock Mill Road where a 20-year-old victim said fired shots as he worked outside on a vehicle, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim told deputies he was working on a vehicle with another man, identified in the report as suspect Terry Overstreet, when the two men got into an argument. The victim said Overstreet fired one shot at him with a black shotgun before the victim ran home, the report added.

Deputies attempted to locate Overstreet but were unsuccessful, and a witness told deputies he did not hear a gunshot.

No injuries were reported.
