Law enforcement officers investigate a shooting that happened at a home in the 2800 block of Pheasant Drive near Tobacco Road.

Police said Amir F. Clark, 17, was wounded twice in the left arm at his home in the 2800 block of Pheasant Drive.

Witnesses told police they heard gunfire coming from Clark’s residence about 3:20 p.m. and called 911 when Clark escaped through a front window and fled to a neighbor’s driveway.

Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Jason Vinson said officers immediately launched a search for the suspect, known by the nickname “Worm.” She was armed with a .38-caliber revolver, according to a sheriff’s report.

Vinson said she was taken into custody late Friday and because she was charged a juvenile, her name could not be released.

Clark was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, Vinson said. His injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, he said.

How did she earn this title? Just another day, just another day. Just another day, just another day. UH, UH.

You are an inconvenience to my life. I will perform a late, very late adult term abortion.

Two shots in the left arm? Who the heck is teaching these thugs in firearms proficiency and marksmanship? Is no one teaching the Mozambique any more?

Sheesh! As long as Richmond County has them in its charge, it may as well give them some education they can use. God knows they will never put the math, English, science and social studies they've been taking to any sort of productive use.

I am trying to decide if you posted this in jest. I know my posting style can be taken the wrong way at times....

You really can't be saying that you think she should have shot and killed him like the students we have been reading about in Columbia County?
I really do not wish that on any child. These are kids remember, they do stupid things, they are not mature adults, and some of them have not even been raised by mature adults.

"2 SHOTS IN THE LEFT ARM BY A .38-Caliber (Revolver)"

Heck, she's a better shot than some of our LEOs.
Well, maybe the arm was handcuffed to a bed post.

Story Missing a lot of Info

Once again the RCSO leaves the Public hanging with limited info.
NEWS maybe 24/7 but such stories are a flash in the pan.

My #1 Question - WHY was he shot?
Was he raping her,?
Was she robbing him?
Was he 2x'ing her and she caught him?
Was he or she burglarizing the house?
Was it a drug deal gone bad?

Please fill in the blank.

Initial reports indicate the shooting was caused by (or due to) _________________ between him and her.

Thamk god for the laws that
Unpublished

Thamk god for the laws that prevent releasing the names of attempted murderers. We are a nation of "laws" after all and we must protect all juveniles, even when they are totally wrong. Wonder why the law dosen't protect the name of the victim?
