Children in next room when man shot on Heritage Circle

September 27, 2006

Two children were in an apartment where shots were fired yesterday afternoon.

Richmond County investigators continue to look for a suspect in the shooting on Heritage Circle, just off Jackson Road in Augusta.

Richard Edwards tells officers a man with a shirt tied to his head came to his door with a gun and shot him in the leg when he tried to get away.

His girlfriend and two children were in another room.

Deputies say it could have been a robbery, and are not certain if the victim knew the gunman.
