AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

No arrests have been made in the death of a Richmond County man following a morning argument. 49-year-old Harry Johnson was shot several times along Ramblewood Drive, just before 11 this morning. Crews rushed him to the emergency room, but he didn't make it. 

"I hear police everywhere. 'What happen? What's going on?' It startles you," said neighbor.

"Upon our arrival, the sheriff's deputies observed not one but two people that have sustained gunshot wounds," said Sgt. Michael McDaniel.

A shocking morning for most neighbors on Ramblewood Drive.

"I did hear a boom, but I didn't think it was no shooting. I would think if it was shooting back and forth I'll hear paw, paw, paw. I didn't hear that," neighbor said.

Neighbors said the two men were arguing outside the home on the corner of Ramblewood Drive and Smoketree Road. Before passersby knew it, things escalated.

"The two guys were shooting at each other and they took them to the hospital," said neighbor.

Johnson died at the Augusta University Medical Center. One neighbor who did not want to be seen on camera said that this is a sad situation and people must learn better ways to handle situations. 

"Doing your grievances peacefully that you have to come out like the Wild West and shoot at each other. It's really heartbreaking," said neighbor.

As of now there has been no arrests. Sgt. McDaniel said these cases take time.

"The process itself can take a number of hours," McDaniel said. "It's a slow process, it's nothing that you can speed through and rush. Because you might miss a crucial piece of evidence that can help solve a case."

"I pray all the time that we have peace, but these things happen. I'm so glad that it wasn't my family, but I'm sad for any families that go through this," neighbor said.

Police are not looking for any additional suspects at this time.
