AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

A person of interest in Sunday's shooting at Paine College turned himself in at the Richmond County Sheriff's Office Thursday.  

Christopher Jackson, 26, turned himself in to investigators around 2 p.m., Sgt. Michael McDaniel said. 

One person was injured by fragments from gunfire during Sunday's shooting at Gray Hall, a male residence hall on campus, deputies said. Another person was injured when he fell running from the shots.

Investigators believe Sunday's shooting at Paine College is connected to Monday's on-campus shooting and to two shootings on Laurel Street
