18-year-old stabbed to death, 15-year-old arrested

An Augusta man died Tuesday after he was stabbed in the chest in the 1900 block of Neptune Drive, and a 15-year-old was arrested in the slaying.

Richmond County Coroner Kenneth Boose said Datravious Hoskins, 18, of Neptune Drive, was pronounced dead at Georgia Regents Medical Center at 6:49 p.m. after suffering a “penetrating injury to his left chest.”

Hoskins was stabbed after arguing with Zemartae Davis, 15, also of Neptune Drive, over a video game system, according to a statement from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office. Davis was arrested late Tuesday on a charge of murder and was taken to the Augusta Regional Youth Detention Center. He will be charged as an adult, according to the statement.

Boose said an autopsy will be performed in Atlanta on Wednesday.
