UPDATE: 1 dead, 1 in critical condition following shooting

Posted: Updated:

Flashing blue lights lit up the Old McDuffie neighborhood Saturday night as investigators combed through a crime scene. 

Richmond County investigators say De'John Grant, 20, was shot and killed on Dublin Drive at about 7:30.

Another man was with him during the shooting and he ran from the vehicle and through a backyard; but he was shot down on Drayton Drive. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Richmond County investigators haven't made any arrests for the shooting.

They tell Fox54 there is at least one person who is still armed with a weapon and dangerous.

Sunday all that remained of the crime scene was shattered glass and blood stains.

Life almost seemed to go on as if nothing happened, children played near the spot where Grant was killed. 

Fox54 went through the neighborhood for several hours and spoke with about two dozen residents, all of them refused to go on camera.

They were afraid if they spoke out about the violence - then they too would become victims. 

As for motive for the shooting, investigators say they're still trying to determine what led to the death of one man and the serious injury of another.

They're continuing to investigate what they're calling a high priority case, so they can find the people responsible for pulling the trigger.



Richmond County Deputy Coroner Kenneth Boose says two people were shot in the Barton Chapel neighborhood Saturday night.

Boose says one man died, while the other was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

The man who died has been identified as De'John Grant, 20, of Augusta.

The shooting happened at 7:30 at the intersection of Dublin Drive and Stockholm Drive.

Grant's body wasn't placed into the coroner's van until 10:30.

Boose initially told FOX54 that they didn't know the identity of the deceased victim, and that they would run his fingerprints to determine his identity.
