Columbia County deputies arrested an Augusta man Tuesday afternoon in connection with a shooting that occurred early Monday morning at Westwood Club Apartments on Washington Road.

Trelon Baker, 20, was arrested at his residence, 73 Fox Trace, in Fox Den Apartments in Augusta, Capt. Steve Morris said.

Baker is being held at the Columbia County Detention Center and is being charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, commission of a crime with a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during a commission of a crime.

No bond has been set.

Jamal Antwan Fielding, 25, said he was sitting on a bench behind the complex’s clubhouse at about midnight when two men and two women approached him demanding cash and jewelry, Morris said.

After Fielding refused, Baker is accused of shooting him in the thigh.

After the shooting, Fielding ran to his apartment, where his girlfriend called 911. His injuries were non-life threatening.

Deputies are searching for the other three suspects.

Seems he likes to shoot people.

Lock him up before he kills somebody.

raul, I did. What a bunch of

raul, I did. What a bunch of silly looking photos. If he thinks that is alot of money he is holding, he is wrong. The sub comments are not in English. No wonder he is so backwards. One of the pictures shows Olmstead Holmes in the background which is now a lower place than it was before being remodeled. Now all Section 8.

Richmond County - Columbia County all the same

They will come no matter where you live - so those who think it doesn't happen in *gasp* Columbia County...WAKE UP - you are not untouchable so get your nose out of the air. The thug invasion is upon you. Section 8 is in Columbia County and steadily increasing. Drugs? already there - Look at all the meth labs and meth related drug arrests. So don't base this on race, demographics, etc. No one is exempt - keep your eyes open that's all you can do to help stop this nonsense. Richmond county has it's fair share of problems we just don't have a rug as big as Columbia County to sweep them all under i guess.

What language is he speaking.

What language is he speaking. No wonder he can not get or hold a job. Must be from the lost tribe down in the bottom. I guess the translation is that he goes and robs someone.
