Dominique Nathaniel Cody, 18, of Meadow Lane, has been charged with felony counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime in connection with the incident, according to Richmond County jail records.
He is being held at the Charles B. Webster Detention Center.
About 6:50 p.m., Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 3700 block of Vera Drive in reference to an injured person, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
