Warrants issued after shooting sends man to hospital

Tiffany Lewis, 26, of Augusta Estates Mobile Home Park.

Arrest warrants have been issued for three people involved in a shooting Thursday at an Augusta mobile home park on Milledgeville Road that sent one man to the hospital.

Richmond County authorities were called to the Augusta Estates Mobile Home Park at about 1 p.m. for a shooting incident with possible injuries, according to a statement released by the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities said two men, Marcus Hilliard and Lewis Harmon, both 28 years old, were about to fight when Tiffany Lewis, 26, came outside of the home with a handgun and fired a shot. Harmon then shot an unknown number of rounds with a handgun.

During the altercation, Hilliard was shot in the upper right thigh and was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center. The hospital could not release any information on his condition, according to a hospital spokesperson.

Investigators were unable to determine who was responsible for the shooting due to conflicting stories from those involved and witnesses, so they issued warrants for all three.

Each was charged with reckless conduct and Harmon was additionally charged with a felony count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Lewis was arrested and was being held at the Richmond County jail with bond set at $1,300.

Hilliard and Harmon have not yet been arrested. All three live in Augusta Estates.
