Augusta man shot; 2 sought



Police are searching for two men after a home invasion at Walden West Apartments late Tuesday.

Marquell Gilbert, 28, underwent surgery at Georgia Regents Medical Center on Wednesday for gunshot wounds to the abdomen and right thigh. His condition has not been released.

At 11:35 p.m., two men kicked in an apartment door at the complex at 2219 Walden Drive, grabbed Gilbert off the sofa and dragged him outside, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report.

Gilbert was able to get away from the men and started running back into the house when one suspect pulled out a handgun and began firing. The suspects then ran away, the report said.

A witness told police they ran south on Walden Drive and one man got into a car.

Suspect information has not been released.
