Neighbors concerned after Thursday night shooting wounds one

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Richmond County Sheriff's Deputies are still looking for the person responsible for a shooting Thursday night that sent one person to the hospital.  

The shooting happened on  Japonica Ave. , and one woman who wishes to remain anonymous, says after Thursday night she's lucky to be alive.

"Whoever that was doing all that shooting could have shot in my bedroom window," she says.

The woman says she heard loud popping sounds outside her house around 9:00 p.m. 

"I said well that seems like it's right outside of my house. I heard at least ten to twelve shots," she says.

When her son came home from work, he was shocked by what he found outside the house.

"He said it's a bullet hole in my car and my window on the passenger side is broke out," the woman explained.

Deputies responded to a call on East Espinosa St. and found a young man had been shot. The victim was taken to GRU and treated for his injuries.

And the woman says the street needs more protection for the elderly population that lives there, especially since the neighborhood watch program doesn't seem to be working.

"I think that the law enforcement should check more often," she says.

But she says the most important thing is that the bullets didn't go into her house.

"I'm just blessed, I just thank the lord. A stray bullet don't know nobody," she says.

Since the investigation is still in the early stages police are asking anyone with information to contact authorities.
