Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Carrier said deputies were called to Alter Ego’z, 1721 Gordon Highway, at 2:18 a.m. after shots were fired there.

According to a police report, a fight broke out inside the club between Marcus Washington and Devin Washington, two Beech Island men with no known relation.

The fight was broken up, and both men were leaving the club when Marcus Washington took a gun from the vehicle he arrived in and fired several shots at Devin Washington, according to authorities.

Pr’Shawn Williams, who arrived at the club with Devin Washington, was shot once in the head and once in the upper leg. He was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he died at 3 p.m.

Police are now searching for both Washingtons. Warrants have been filed for Marcus Washington for murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Anyone with any information about either man is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at (706) 821-1080. Information on Marcus Washington, who is considered armed and dangerous, should be directed to a violent-crimes investigator.

Unpublished

another thug club, what a surprise....culture, culture, culture of violence. both mothers will be shopping at cititrends, one buying an outfit for a funeral and another buying an outfit for a trial.

BTW...where are the "just-us brutha's" gee another young black male shot dead in the streets, and no al or jessie, where are the busloads of naive college students or local community/religious leaders yelling "no justice, no peace" claiming "racism" at every opportunity??? oh yeah that's right this is probably another (yawn) black-on-black crime, so this wont sell to the media nor can it be used to keep the collection plates full

One more reason to avoid that part of Gordon Highway.
Unpublished

It's become a cesspool. T-Bones left for a reason. As did the mall. How many shootings at the Krystal that were there? If someone in ARC government doesn't step up and start spreading the tax money around instead of hoarding it all downtown this area will continue to decline. Sad, cause it used to be a nice area to shop and hang out.

And the crime in Augusta

And the crime in Augusta continues down the same road. We now see drug drops being made in out West Augusta neighborhood. They are in and out too fast for cops to catch them once called. We're just waiting for the shooting to begin next.

Unpublished

i say again where are the naive college students who were so quick to organize a trip to sanford florida to march "for trayvonn", where are the local civil rights/religious leaders who until collection levels fell back to pre trayvonn levels, involked "trayvonn" and/or "racism/racist/racism" rhetoric each time they opened their mouths, but lastly and most important where are the "just-us bruthas" al and jessie it seems the only time they show up is when the crime is white-on-black crime. where is the uproar from the black community, where are the marches, the protests, the shouts of indignation???? the silence may be deafening but it makes a clear statement by the "so-called" leaders who claim to want the best for the black community. it shows the clear lack of concern, the lack of true compassion, the lack of wanting the black community to rid itself of the shackles of black-on-black crime, high levels of unwed births, single parent households led by women, babies having babies, high level of illiteracy which leads to poverty. these "so-called" leaders secretly and behind close doors want, need, and enable this type of behavior, because as long as the black community remains a culture of violence, crime, illiteracy, and having a victim mentality they are able to manipulate the ignorant masses to look every where else except for at themselves in order to solve the problem. these shysters and snake oil salesman will always be the ones the ingnorant and naive (or as they call them-"their flock") will turn to screaming "oh passa, oh passa, what can be done", and it is then they blame the "white man" all the while encouraging their flock to "give so you can get your blessing" meanwhile they are on the way to the bank to make mortgage payments on thier million dollar homes, lexus or range rovers, build their multi-million dollar churches (between 11th/12th and wrightboro and located behind cherrytree xing)and rolex watches. all the while refusing to use their influence to call for blacks to rise up and confront the real threat to their community, while enabling animals who rob, rape, kill, sell drugs, don't work, and just down right trifling individuals who rely on the government to take care of them

I'm sure everything was legal too...
Unpublished

I'm sure that Marcus Washington had his weapons license with him. And I'm sure that the gun in question was legitimately purchased from a gun store; and it has a valid intact serial number... Stupid punk. Let's see if the jury has the guts to render a visit with the needle. BTW: I've seen him before.

jeep i seriously doubt it
Unpublished

jeep i seriously doubt it when he is caught out will trot local pastors and other enablers to say what an upstanding citizen this piece of crap is and the he was without his "daddie" and his mom (who by the way in her new cititrend outfit sitting in the front row of the court room pretending to look upset and concerned about her son) tried the best she could (chances are her address is dogwood terrace, cooney circle, cherry tree, or ulmstead homes) and how she is getting herself together by going to school and "trying to find a job (probably at the advice of his lawyer was told to enroll in augusta tech to learn how to "do hair" and apply at one of the local dollar stores) and that in his lawyers words "he just got caught up with the wrong crowd, and he did mean to shoot anyone"....of course the local pastors and civil right leaders will be screaming "racism/racist/racism" at the mere mention of capital punishment or any meaninful punishment for him
