  • Follow Crime & courts

A North Augusta man was fatally shot early Saturday.

About 2:45 a.m., police responded to a shooting report at Ridge­view Manor Apartments on Brad­ley­ville Road. They found Travis Smith, 28, dead of a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

A witness told police that two black men in hoodies approached Smith as he stood outside an apartment with his girlfriend. One of the men fired a shot in Smith’s direction as he and his girlfriend ran inside, according to a statement by North Augusta Public Safety Lt. Tim Thornton.

Smith and his girlfriend were visiting a friend.

Public Safety detectives and the State Law Enforcement Divi­sion are investigating.

The suspects are described as more than 6 feet tall and around 160 pounds. They are considered armed and dangerous. One wore a red hoodie and the other a black hoodie. Detectives have not determined a motive.

Anyone with any information about the shooting or the identity of either suspect can call Pub­lic Safety at (803) 279-2121 or the lead investigator, Detective Jon Nelson, at (803) 441-4276.

WOW

Now watch what the reason will be! Silly people and will be the first to complain about a wrong doing. Then the whole ignorance of the item is " It is known that this place is a honey hole for knuckle heads and do nothings" This is exactlly how the Taliban operates, through what the law will not investigate, so it is the same! ! ! Yet we call them savage?

The section of Gordon Hwy

The section of Gordon Hwy west of I-520 is decent, and part west of Jimmie Dyess is very nice with multiple new construction developments..

SC's version of CTC was my thoughts f4time! Drug deals, stolen vehicles, and shooting. All in that one apartment area.
It's the end of the world if you don't hear cop sirens at least once a week over there.

SMH

Red and Black hoodie thats every baggy saggy pants wearing person. Good going witnesses and I guess NA police does patrol areas like this because they're to busy setting up road blocks. "You have Ga plates why are you over here".
