Augusta man shot during home invasion Wednesday

An Augusta man was hospitalized after being shot in a home invasion Wednesday morning.

Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Carrier said deputies called to the 2100 block of Stevens Road just before
1 a.m. found the injured James Lambert, 34.

Lambert told investigators that he answered a knock at the door to find two men with guns. During a confrontation, Lambert was wounded.

He was taken to Medical Col­lege of Georgia Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Deputies were called to another home invasion about 3:10 a.m. on Fox Trace Drive.

According to a police report, four men in black clothing and armed with handguns kicked in the back door yelling, “Richmond County Sher­iff’s Office. We have a search warrant.”

A 28-year-old woman at the home told deputies she tried to call 911 but that the men pointed a gun at her and made her get on the floor.

They left without taking anything.
