An unidentified man fired shots at a 16-year-old after a fight on the 2500 block of Drumcliff Circle in Hephzibah.

According to a Richmond County sheriff’s report, the 16-year-old said that he and some friends got in a verbal argument with a group of teenagers at the fair over what neighborhood they resided in.

The teenager said that after the fight he and his friends left the fair and went home. Later, at about 1 a.m. Saturday, the teenager was sitting outside his residence when a white, four-door Toyota Camry drove to the end of his street. A man got out of the car, walked down the street toward him and told the teenager that he wanted to talk about what was said at the fair.

The teenager told officers that the man became angry and punched him in the face. The teenager said that he and the man wrestled around for a while. The teenager said that his clothes were ripped off during the assault.

As the teenager was walking away, he heard someone say, “Don’t do it, don’t do it.” Then someone fired four to five gunshots behind him.

The teenager ran inside the house and a family member called the Sheriff’s Office.

When officers arrived, they found that the teenager had several small scratches on his left cheek, which was also swollen. The teenager told officers that he thinks that the gunshots were fired in order to scare him.

The man who fought the teenager is described as a black male, about 18 years old, about 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighing about 145 pounds, and wearing a red collared shirt, blue jeans, and white Nike Air Force One tennis shoes.
