Man robbed, shot while walking along Deans Bridge Road

 

A man was shot in the shoulder after being robbed while walking to his aunt’s house Monday night.

Around 9 p.m., Shawn Christopher Early, 33, left work at Villa Europa at 3044 Deans Bridge Road. He hadn’t gotten far when two black males stopped him and tried to start up a conversation, said Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew.

One of the men pulled out a handgun and asked Early for money. When Early handed over cigarettes and a cellphone, the man shot him in the right arm, just below the shoulder.

Chew said Early was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he is in serious but stable condition, but will require surgery.

The shooter was described as a black male, 6 feet tall, 185 pounds, and wearing dark clothing.
