A man is in critical condition after being shot in the neck near Deans Bridge Road on Christmas Eve.

The victim, whose name was not immediately available, was described at a black male in his 20s, according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Investigator Chris Langford.

Little information was available as deputies surveyed a crime scene that stretched from Deans Bridge Road’s intersection with Milledgeville Road to Cherry Road.

“One witness heard six shots and saw him running,” Investigator Langford said. “He ran up to her, asked for help and fell on the ground.”

The victim was taken to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital’s Emergency Room, Investigator Langford said.

Police said they had no suspects identified and were not yet sure where the shots originated.
