An Augusta teen wanted in a Satur­day night shooting that wounded a man turned himself in Monday.

Jamel Olajuon Boyd, 17, of East Bulla Street, was booked on felony charges of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, jail records show.

Sharon Ivey, of Augusta, said she and Julion Tyrone Ha­mil­ton, 39, of East Chap­man Street, were walking along Sibley Street when a man rode up on a bicycle and shot Hamilton, an incident report said.

The sheriff’s office obtained arrest warrants for Boyd before he turned himself in, according to a news release Monday.

Be Jailed until trial

My Prediction
5 years/ 4 off due to overcrowding, (aka time served) and 5 years probation.

He will be a familiar face to the area in the coming years, before meeting up with a 9mm used by someone acting bigger and badder than himself. Or an armed citizen.

I hope he gets his life turned around, because the public's tolerance has worn thin on understanding.
