McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office presence in Thomson neighborhood after reports of shooting

MCDUFFIE COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - The McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office is on the scene at Viola Avery St. and Cherokee St. in Thomson where neighbors say someone was shot.

Moronica Davis said she rushed home from work after her daughter called and told her about what happened.

“What’s going on now? That’s what my thought was. About six almost seven months ago, we had a death up the road and now, this right here," Davis said.

Once officials arrived on scene, they found a male subject who had been shot. The subject was taken to a medical center in Augusta by the McDuffie County EMS for treatment.

A man who lives nearby and did not want to be identified said he heard several gunshots this morning that he thought were firecrackers.

“'I just heard like ‘pow, pow pow pow pow’ like five shots.”

At this time we do not have any further information, but the investigation is still active. Stick with FOX 54 for updates on this developing story.
