Man on bicycle shot at River Glen apartments

A man was shot twice Tuesday morning while riding his bicycle through the River Glen apartment complex.

Quandarius Hakim Mar­tin, 21, of Goldfinch Drive, told Richmond County sheriff’s deputies that a man in all black clothing approached him about 1 a.m., stole his pants and shot him once in each thigh.

The apartment complex on East Boundary has been a troublesome spot for law enforcement, with three fatal shootings since May 2011. A rally was held at River Glen in February to bring attention to the violence.

The complex is primarily a women’s housing facility, but police said male visitors are causing the problems.
