Aiken County detectives are looking for a suspect in the shooting of two Aiken men this morning during a home invasion.

Shot in a bedroom were Carlos Kitchings, 19, and Anthony Mitchell, 28, both residents of a home in the 300 block of Shiloh Heights Road.

Another resident of the home said she heard a disturbance and gunshots inside the home and ran to a neighbor's house to call for help. While calling, she looked outside and reportedly saw three people dressed all in black and armed with guns run from her house.

The injured men were taken to Aiken Regional Medical Centers. Mr. Mitchell was treated for a gunshot to the side and released. Mr. Kitchings was shot in the chest and is currently in the intensive care unit.

According to the sheriff’s office, this is the second shooting at this location involving Mr. Kitchings.

On Jan. 28, Mr. Kitchings was shot in the leg and told investigators he did not know who shot him and that he did not wish to press any charges.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (800) 922-9709.

I can't imagine. Yes I can.

I can't imagine. Yes I can. Not just that house. That is a very infamous "part of town." Someone is a really poor shot.

Thanks be to de Lawdy! These

Thanks be to de Lawdy! These people are no doubt black and it's a well known fact that most blacks couldn't hit the side of a barn with most firearms. The victim obviously has never been a contender for the chamber of commerce's Man of the Year award. It will be a happy day when they finally succeed in rubbing each other out. It may make it a little safer for the rest of us law-abiding folks. The ones who staged this little escapade don't have a clue about the rules of civilized behavior.

There's no excuse for getting shot a second time. If you don't take the steps to defend yourself, then you get what you get. If they come to my house, it will be their last.
