AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

A 15-year-old boy is charged with murder after Richmond County deputies say he fatally stabbed an 18-year-old man Tuesday evening in an argument over a video game system.

Deputies responded to Neptune Drive at Cindy Drive around 6 p.m. Tuesday and found Datravious Hoskins suffering life-threatening injuries after being stabbed, said Sgt. Monica Belser with the sheriff's office. Hopkins later died from his injuries.

Zemartae Davis was arrested and charged as an adult with murder, Belser said. He is being held at the Regional Youth Detention Center.

The sheriff's office continues to investigate the incident.
