Facebook meeting turns into gunplay

A Hephzibah teen told police a man she met on Facebook fired several shots at her after he brought her chicken nuggets.


Quitney Antwane Hardens, 25, was booked into the Richmond County jail Wednesday on aggravated assault charges.

The 17-year-old girl told police she had been talking to the man, known only as Sean, on Facebook for about two years. On Aug. 21, he messaged her through social media asking whether she were home and whether she wanted chicken nuggets, according to an incident report.

When he pulled up at her residence about 1 p.m., she said, she recognized him from his online photos but had never met him.

He tried to make her get into the car and ride with him, she said, but when she refused he became angry and yelled at her. The girl told police she was walking away from the vehicle when the man pulled out a gun and fired several shots that hit her house.

A neighbor witnessed the incident.
