Three people were arrested today and charged in a fatal shooting Saturday night.

According to a Richmond County jail committal, Susan Elaine Inglett, 24, of the 200 block of Barrow Drive, and Nicholson Rydell Williams, 18, of the 200 block of Memory Drive, were arrested this morning in connection with the fatal shooting of the owner of the House of Cheung King of Wing restaurant at 2331 Milledgeville Road.

Michael Eugene Williams, 20, turned himself in at the Richmond County Law Enforcement Center about 9 p.m., according to a jailer. He had been sought on charges of murder, criminal attempt armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

First of all, condonences to

First of all, condonences to the family. Second, looked at pictures on internet. Looks like the same low-life people I see all around Augusta. Can't expect the commission the clean up the nieghborhoods, these are the people that vote them in. Last, I have a permit and carry a pistol. I suggest all law bidding citizens to do the same.

This family has been in

This family has been in business since I was a boy, in the late 60s and all of the 70s their restaurant use to be next to Wishbone fried chicken and Gilbert Manor until they moved to this location years ago. If I'm not mistaken, Jone Yin Cheung is the son of the original owner. What a sad day he was a very friendly person, the entire family was, I remember his grandmother taking my order back in the 70s. Lord have mercy.

My wife was in there

My wife was in there yesterday, and Mr. Cheung took her order. She told me that he had been working there a long time...since she was a kid. It's sad that these kids think that they can get away with something like this. Now they will spend the rest of their lives in prison over a few dollars.

Public hangings would be a

Public hangings would be a better deterrent then life in prison. At least the trash is now off the streets the other guy turned himself in. My condolences to the family.

The people in " that

The people in " that neighborhood" were instrumental in the arrest of these suspects. As a matter of fact the Grandmother was the one to persuade Michael Williams to turn himself in. So stop trying to paint everyone with that broad brush some of you like to use.

So what are you saying? You

So what are you saying? You are disappointed that there wasn't a riot? Some of you are so cold that you would use this man's death, to spew your bigotry. No law abiding citizen I know condones the actions of any criminal regardless of their race.
