Teen indicted after firing at 3 Richmond County deputies

A teenager faces multiple charges of aggravated assault after he fired at three Richmond County deputies in July, according to an indictment returned Tuesday.

Joshua Haynes III was 16 when he fired at deputies Jo Martin, Jason Cunningham and Jon Harvey on July 22 outside his house in the 1900 block of Murphey Road. Each count carries an accompanying charge of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. He is also charged with aggravated assault for firing at his mother, the indictment says.

The indictment says Haynes also made “terroristic threats” to commit murder and aggravated assault against his mother.

A tenth charge of interference with government property is for ripping off a portion of a table in the criminal investigation division at the sheriff’s office, the indictment says.
