Man, 22, dies after shooting at Gordon Highway club

A 22-year-old Augusta man died Thursday after being shot in the head and leg outside a nightclub on Gordon Highway.


Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Carrier said deputies were called to Alter Ego’z, 1721 Gordon Highway, at 2:18 a.m. after shots were fired there.

According to a police report, a fight broke out inside the club between Marcus Washington and Devin Washington, two Beech Island men with no known relation.

The fight was broken up, and both men were leaving the club when Marcus Washington took a gun from the vehicle he arrived in and fired several shots at Devin Washington, according to authorities.

Pr’Shawn Williams, who arrived at the club with Devin Washington, was shot once in the head and once in the upper leg. He was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he died at 3 p.m.

Police are now searching for both Washingtons. Warrants have been filed for Marcus Washington for murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Anyone with any information about either man is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at (706) 821-1080. Information on Marcus Washington, who is considered armed and dangerous, should be directed to a violent-crimes investigator.
