Man fires shots at Augusta home

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a man fired several shots into an Augusta home early Saturday.

At 2:16 a.m., deputies were called to the 1800 block of Formosa Drive in reference to shots fired, according to an incident report.

On arrival, they made contact with the victims, who said they had just returned home from a birthday party and were getting ready for bed when a black man, who goes by the name Slugger, kicked open the front door and fired several shots. The man then left the scene in a vehicle.

One of the victims told police she believes the incident followed a fight between the “600 Gang” and the “23rd Gang” at Club Alter Ego earlier in the night. The victim told police that no one in the house has any connection to any gangs. According to the report, deputies found several casings to 9mm bullets near the front door of the residence. Police also found several holes in the home’s interior walls and furniture.

Four people were inside the home at the time of the shooting, including a 4-year-old girl. No one was injured.
