A teen was wounded Tuesday in a shootout in south Augusta.

Richmond County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the 2400 block of Reese Avenue, after 5 p.m. and found Detrevious Pace, 18, with at least two gunshot wounds, to his side and ankle. He was taken to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, according to Sgt. Jason Vinson.

The shooter was described as a black man with a large frame and shoulder-length braids, wearing a white tank top. He was last seen fleeing south on Reese Avenue in a dark green SUV.

Vinson said a fight had broken out among a large group of people, which led to gunfire. Witnesses said more than one person fired guns, but that one man had fired four shots at Pace.

Neighbor Thomas Burton said he was working on a lawn mower in his driveway when the shooting started.

Burton said the violence began as a fight between two men that escalated into a standoff between two groups. He said the man on the losing end of the altercation pulled a pistol and fired at the man who had beaten him.

I have a suggestion. Troubellious.

Combo of trouble and rebellious. Not for the victim but for the single teenaged non-high school graduate set up in a home because she is pregnant. Suggestion for her to out name her friends ' choices.

Why do so many people think

Why do so many people think these days that a weapon is the solution to solving problems?

We are actually a more violent society than the wild west ever was.

Know the area

Don't hold your breath that the description of the shooter will bring in leads, it now matches too many running around in the area.

On the bright side it is a target rich environment for a crime fighter.

My goodness

I just don't understand todays young people. They think having a gun makes them a man. They think shooting a fellow human being is another rite of passage. There is no light at the end of thre tunnel either. I think any young male caught with a firearm that is not registered in his name should do hard time.
Build more prisons. I'd rather my tax money go to building more cages for these dangerous thugs. Feed them swill. Make it as unpleasant as possible. Make them work from sunup to sundown. Make them sleep on the floor. No frills. No visitation, no parole. Until we get serious about severe punishment for gun toting criminals it will just be more of the same. Flog them for infractions. Bring back the stocks. We need to get serious about these unfeeling, wild west wannabees and make their lives a living hell if they are caught with a firearm.

Swift and Certain

Even one of my most liberal professors in college taught in Criminology that swift and certain punishment is indeed a deterent.

"Oh, no, son. That's not the way it is. You kids have been nothin' but punks. Sissified. So quick to pick up a gun. Too scared to take an *edit*-whipping. [raises his fists] This is what makes you a man. When I was growing up, this was all the protection we needed. You win some, you lose some. But you live. You live to fight another day. Now you think you're a man with that gun in your hand, don't you?"

Great comment

My dad grew up in Brooklyn, mainly because that is where my Dutch grandmother's family had resided (and farmed) since the 1600's. He had a friend who had taken up boxing, probably in college. On some occasion, the friend found hinself in a fight with someone. He, of course, used his boxing skills. Daddy said the punk said "Hey, that's not fair in street fighting."

That was in the 40's. Today the little punk would pull out a pistol, just like David Parker said.

The warden said "That's the way he wants it, that's the way he gets....it". If you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas. People living in this type of environment do not desire to live a better life. They are not working towards a brighter tomorrow, nor do they share or respect the values many of you posters take on without so much as a second thought. And if you try to help, well it's like when you give your outdoor pooch a bath. The first thing he does is go roll in the first patch of sand he can find.

I know this approach will sound calloused to those of the bleeding heart persuasion, but the older I get, the less inclined I am to help those who do not desire help.

And that's all I got to say about Thaet!
