One man shot in the leg after altercation outside mobile home

Posted: Updated:

One Augusta man was shot in the leg after a physical altercation at a mobile home park earlier today.

Richmond County investigators say Marcus Hilliard, 28, was shot at the Augusta Estates mobile home park around 1 p.m. and was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center for Treatment.

Some neighbors in the area said they are tired of the violence in their community.

"The violence needs to stop," said Racardo Jones, a resident of Augusta Estates. "It needs to stop today because this black-on-black crime isn't going to get us anywhere but into the cemetery or in jail."

Police say due to conflicting stories of both the people involved and witnesses, they were unable to determine who the actual suspect was.

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office decided to issue arrest warrants for 3 people involved.

Tiffany Lewis, 26, is in custody and charged with reckless conduct.

Marcus Hilliard is charged with reckless conduct.

Lewis Harmon, 28, is charged with reckless conduct and a felony charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He is not currently in police custody.
