Man wanted in club shooting surrenders

  • Follow Metro

An 18-year-old Augusta man wanted in last week's fatal nightclub shooting turned himself in to police on Saturday.

Richmond County sheriff's investigators said Darion Antonio McNair surrendered at the Law Enforcement Center on Walton Way at about 11:30 a.m.

He is charged with murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime in Monday's shooting of 18-year-old Stedmund Fryer, Sgt. Richard Roundtree stated in a news release.

About 150 to 200 people were on the dance floor at Club Super C's Lounge on Tobacco Road early Monday when Mr. Fryer was shot, authorities said. Both young men were involved in an altercation before the shooting, police have said.

Mr. McNair has been in trouble before. He was indicted in October on 19 counts, including aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime in connection with a July 2006 drive-by shooting at a Bahama Drive apartment complex. At the time, police said it was related to the gangs Sunset and O-Dub.

Police have said Monday's shooting does not appear to be gang-related. Jordash Tanksley, 23, of Augusta, who is a known associate of Mr. McNair, is wanted for questioning in the case. He has not been charged.

Anyone with information on either shooting can call the sheriff's office at (706) 821-1080.

Let's be adults about the

Let's be adults about the situation(s) at hand. Let's focus on taking our communities back and making our neighborhoods safe, not just for the residents in the community, but for potential passerbys, as well. Let's not bicker about petty things and focus all our efforts on solutions to the cause and effects these senseless killings are having on our society. There seems to be no respect for life anymore, and we, the citizens... we the parents and grandparents... we the politicians.... we the ministers and congregations.... we the law enforcement officers and officers of the Court must set aside all differences, regardless of what nature, and get together to fight this cause. Today, it's somebody else's child, brother, grandchild, father, but tomorrow it could be mine or yours. Think about it....a bullet, whether stray or intentional has no one's name on it!! Let's set aside today as the day that we, all of us, forfeit all the negativity and scrutiny of each other, and set our goals on being loving, kind and considerate of other's feelings. Believe me, it makes you feel so much better and your life will have more peace and contentment. God Bless You, My Friends.

As a society, we're a long

As a society, we're a long way from a common responsibility. If special dispensation isn't given to certain groups, then we're not being "fair". A common attitude of responsibility will lead to a common respect. We don't have to like everyone to respect everyone, but we need a reason to have respect. It's earned not given. Being responsible for our actions, and acting responsible, must be taught at an early age. Being responsible at all times will earn the respect we need as a society and as individuals. I know this sounds like a giant circle of reasoning, but all we need is a starting point.

It is odd that if this guy

It is odd that if this guy did the shooting that he would turn himself in. Maybe a parent talked him into it.... hmmmm or maybe he didn't do it. I wonder why this tankersley guy is hiding out and won't come forward. He must have outstanding warrents or is deeper into it that we think. Hope they catch the guy who shot up mcnairs's sisters house too. These gun toting punks may get "props" from their boys for all this crap.... I just think they are all a bunch of cowards and wothless trash.

THis is how I feel about the

THis is how I feel about the situation. McNair was probably back on the streets because of overcrowded jails. With that many indictments against him, he should now face the death penalty. He was already involved with a drive by shooting. I know we have to think about the parents and family members but I bet every night one inch of worry faced that mother on "if" something would happen. Now she can have one less worry. He cannot be endangered and he cannot endanger someone else. They need to change the "Brady Law" in which I knew way back then that this was going to happen society. Hand Guns only belong in the hands of security and police. Rifles belong to the military and true game hunters. Boy, I wish I was an elected official. It is time for "CHANGE." Our tax money is housing and feeding all these thugs of all colors.

I have had a handgun for over 15 yrs. I hope I never have to use it, but if I have to I will. It is for protection. If someone breaks in our house, I will blow them away.

I can't help but wonder where

I can't help but wonder where we as parents are going wrong?
Do we let our children raise themselves without guidance?Are we too busy with our own affairs and don't care. Maybe if we start charging the parents when their underage child commits a crime, they pay more attention.

RESPECT! RESPECT! RESPECT!

RESPECT! RESPECT! RESPECT! Isn't that what these thugs want and how do you expect to teach them anything about respect If you the everyday person that they interact with cannot respect your fellow man. Remember the GOLDEN RULE. When was the last time you said excuse me when bumping into someone or passing in front of them. When was the last time you let that car enter into the lane. Respect is not earned!! You must give it freely in order for it to be given back. Remember that commercial where everyone is doing something nice for each other and it eventually comes back around to the first character. The saying is true what comes around goes around and what you see in the news, etc. is just a reflection of how we as a society are being with each other. Wake Up, People stop walking around with your heads down minding your own business. Hold your heads up high and start changing the world. It only takes one good deed.

The racism that is displayed

The racism that is displayed here is disgusting. When the real story comes out you will all be eating your words.

One question, Why is a bar allowed to stay open all day Sunday, do rules not apply to clubs that African-Americans frequent?

D1216 if you knew anything

D1216 if you knew anything about Super C's you would know that is is a Sports Bar that is why it stays open, and to futher comment all the "African American clubs" follow the same guidelines as any other club here in Augusta.

He probably turned himself in

He probably turned himself in because he's safer in jail than he is on the street. He is a chickensheet thug who is scared of getting "popped" in retaliation.

I feel as if all these little

I feel as if all these little damn thug wannabes should all be taken from our streets and taken to much harder real-life gang streets and see how long their punk asses last there. I've been living in the same area all this shooting and drug stuff has been going on for the last 17 years and Im tired of it. I've seen and heard over 10 people shot over drugs and gangs in the last 8 months and Im ready to do something about it! What if they would have missed and killen an innocent child/bystander.. Then what would the people have to say?

no easy answers to this

no easy answers to this problem. changing gun laws wouldn't do much since the shooter didn't have a permit anyway (from what little i know, lawbreakers tend not to follow laws such as gun codes, anyway). changing curfew laws would do loads, but this is hard to enforce (and the victim was 18 - where are we gonna set the curfew age, 25?). i did think there was supposed to be security in place at clubs that serve alcohol (if that is their primary sales item, anyway) - was there no one at this club / sports bar that night? finally, gang membership is nearly impossible to stop: these young men find camaraderie & validation in these groups which they can't find in society. the fact that this lifestyle also receives plenty of media coverage doesn't exactly discourage wannabees from pursuing the thug life for credibility.

listen. im 20 years old and i

listen. im 20 years old and i have something to say to all the previous entries. there is no reason to bicker online about problems that are ongoing. "you" need to get busy and get on your job as parents, teachers, leaders, neighbors, friends, and residents of augusta! your job should be to talk to a young man or woman about what changes "you" will help them make. tell them that someone loves them and that someone is you. tell them that they dont have to kill for respect, "you" respect them. i know this is what they want to hear because they are my peers. these are the things we want to hear our community tell us. compliment us when we acheive. not judge us and criticize us when we fail. help us to do better. dont argue about what we arent doing right. we dont all have fathers to guide us. we dont all have a loving homes. some of us are crying out for help. cant you hear us? cant you see us? dont talk about what's not happening. help us make it right. until then......shut up and sit down! you're not a solution, you're the problem!
