A 20-year-old male victim is in the intensive care unit at University Hospital this morning, while the 52-year-old female victim was treated for a bullet wound to the leg at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital and released, according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Investigator Chris Langford.

The male victim’s wounds were not life threatening, Investigator Langford said.

The two victims were shot outside the apartments after an altercation with an unknown suspect or suspects, he said.

If you think the maddness in

If you think the maddness in Augusta is bad, you should read about all the violence in Jacksonville and New Orleans. And the majority of the violence is caused by the same type of crowd. Its everywhere.

For those not in the “know”,

For those not in the “know”, Democrat is a euphemism for African American. Got to admit it is kind of funny how someone says it every day and 10 people ask what does being a Democrat have to do with it, hahahahaha

I cannot believe the racist

I cannot believe the racist and simply inappropriate comments posted here. This is why Augusta will always remain Disgusta, and it is not only because of the mentality of the poor or impoverished but because of the backward, thinking and racial divide that is so abundantly apparent in this city... This is insane! ...

The comments are here and the racial divide exist BECAUSE OF the mentality of the poor and impoverished and the needless violence committed by certain people. It is cradle to grave entitlement mentality for some. Stop all the government/taxpayer entitlements and things would get better soon after a brief period when the thugs kill each other and the law abiding citizens kill the rest protecting their individual rights. It is called Darwinism and the government needs to get with the program instead of dreaming up even more entitlement plans.
