A 25-year-old man was shot in the leg during an Evans break-in Monday morning.

A Columbia County sheriff’s report says a burglar entered the home in the 500 block of Blue Ridge Crossing about 2:30 a.m. He pointed a handgun at a man sleeping there and demanded money. When the man said he had no money, the intruder took a cell phone from him and went into another bedroom, where a man and woman were in bed.

When the man started to fight him, the burglar pulled his handgun and pointed it at the man’s forehead. The woman pulled the handgun down as it discharged, hitting the man in his upper left thigh. The thief grabbed the man’s wallet and fled.

The victim was taken to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital for treatment, the report says.

The intruder was described as black, about 6 feet 1 inch to 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighing between 200 and 230 pounds, wearing a black, short sleeve shirt and a black T-shirt, black pants, a black cap with white letters, and carrying a black semiautomatic handgun.

I wish the girl would have grabbed the gun and killed the [filtered word]hole. We need situations where we call the coroner to pick up the suspect's body!

It is what it is, yes its

It is what it is, yes its normally the same type of person that does the home invasions cause they dont have the B***S to face someone up front and personal. We need more alarm systems on our homes to give us an advanced warning to send these POSs to the place where they need to be and thats not the system for us to clothe and bathe them and give them free meals and medical treatment either. If its a black person, white person or whatever person doesnt matter to me.

You got that right denise!!!

You got that right denise!!! One of the biggest mistakes CC has ever made. They used to not allow that crap, and for good reason. They should publish the names of those who voted to infest what was once a nice county so we may thank them in person or at the least get them out of office. I don't see why they can't see what a mistake it was and undo such a stupid idea. I know I didn't pay the extra cost to live next door to all these immoral irresponsible people, I paid it to get out of RC and away from them! Deserving good people on any type of housing assistance is few and far between.

Does anyone there proof read

Does anyone there proof read anything? Evidently quality is not a priority. They have one or two good ones and the rest have no standards and do not seem to take their job seriously at all. I mean how hard is it and how long does it to take to see you wrote an entire sentence that made no sense what so ever. You didn't write a novel.

A man that size really doesn't even need a gun. Especially a jacked up man. Maybe we didn't get the whole truth, you think???

I believe proof reading has

I believe proof reading has gone to the waistside. This article was on WRDW's website earlier. They were discussing the approval of the Tee Center. "John terry never thought he'd say the day Augusta commissioners approved million to revitalize the Laney Walker/ Bethlehem community." Are they using the word 'say' to convey his accent? What about the 'million' they approved? Example 1. Dat ders million gona get 'er dun. Example 2. Slingin dis rock gonna make me million, homie!
