Approximately 6:30 p.m., deputies responded to 201 East Telfair Street in reference to an altercation, according to Sgt. Monica Belser.

Upon arrival, deputies chased suspect Antonio Holmes from East Telfair Street to East Walker Street, where the suspect was apprehended.

While being chased, Holmes dropped his sawed-off shotgun, but it was found and recovered by deputies.

“Holmes has a history of terrorizing victims in East Augusta,” Belser said.

The unidentified victim, who Belser said “was shot with bird-shot ammunition,” was treated at the scene and not hospitalized.

The investigation is ongoing.

The prosecutors and judges want to make sure he has every opportunity to kill someone first.

WHEN???

When are law-abiding citizens going to say, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!"? This punk is 20 and he's shooting at people? He has a history of terrorizing people? How many chances does he need before he actually kills someone? Where is the community outrage? We, as a society, need to say "that's enough!" Punks that cannot obey the law and cannot act like a normal, functioning human being need to be isolated from society. I don't know about you, but I am sick of criminals ruling the streets. I am sick of people making excuses and turning a blind eye. I am sick of people getting multiple opportunities to injure of kill people. We need to bring back chain gangs and Old Sparky. Public executions would work well, too.

Whats the history?

Yeah anyone that's shooting someone should be in jail. But anyone knows the history? shot someone before? or more of getting into a fight with someone? just curious because they left it kind of vague. Can't say he should've been in jail for life for a bar fight or something. But i do agree he should be in jail for this event.
