Deputies investigate shooting at apartment

LINCOLN COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - The Richmond County Sheriff's Department is investigating a shooting that happened Wednesday night in the 500 block of 13th Street.

Deputies answered a call around 6:07 p.m. Wednesday to Georgia Regents Medical Center regarding an injured man.

When deputies arrived at the hospital, the man told them he had been shot while standing in the back of apartment D-22 at 505 13th Street.

There is not a suspect description out and deputies said there isn't a incident report said, either. Neighbors, though, said they're afraid to let their kids play outside.

"I have to monitor them more and keep them close by," Rita Henson said.

Details are still limited at this time. We will have more information as it becomes available.
