Witnesses sought in Augusta's first homicide of 2013

Richmond County Sheriff’s investigators are looking for witnesses to help solve a fatal New Year’s Day shooting.

Lt. Calvin Chew said Thursday that detectives think someone may have seen the shooting or have learned potentially valuable information about 21-year-old Edward Yancey’s killing at Club Fiesco, 2925 Peach Orchard Road. Yancey was hit by a stray bullet about 2:30 a.m. as the club was closing and patrons were heading to a parking area.

Anyone with information can call the sheriff’s office at (706) 821-1080, or at (706) 821-1020 during regular business hours. Callers can remain anonymous.
