Christopher Jones, 33, was shot in a home in the 1000 block of Kent Street, with Richmond County sheriff’s deputies called about 2 p.m., according to the incident report.

Patricia Johnson, 61, told police that she was watching television in the living room while her son, Jones, was talking to the suspect in a back room.

Jones told deputies that the suspect, who goes by Troy, met him in the back bedroom, brandished a black handgun and tried to rob him. After pushing the suspect off him, Jones said, the suspect fired at him while running toward the front door. Jones was shot in his left hand and thigh.

Deputies found several bullets holes in Jones’ house, along with blood spatter and shell casings.

Just a thought here Jones,

Just a thought here Jones, but maybe you should not have anymore play dates with Troy in your back room.

Yep. The location makes you

Yep. The location makes you wonder what in the world Mr. Jones had of value? And don't you get to know your friends before you invite them into your home, let alone your bedroom.

And The Last Name Is ??

Before you would let someone into a back room of your house, wouldn't a reasonable person, KNOW THEIR LAST NAME ??!! And Christopher IS 33 years old !! Reminds me of the guy that got robbed, and he had 17 pairs of Nike Jordans. Fishy to me...just sayin'

these types of shooting

these types of shooting incidents have become common for Augusta. I predict that in the not too distant future, individual news articles will cease and there will be a summary news article in the Monday newspaper like Detroit and Chicago, e.g. 22 shot, 6 dead in weekend shootings.

Fishy doesn't even begin to tell the story here, does it?

Details at Eleven.... Or whenever because there sure weren't any in that report.
