AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Richmond County deputies are investigating a drive-by shooting that injured one person on Virginia Road at Wheeles Road around 7:30 p.m.

According deputies, two people were shot at by two men riding in a pick-up truck. A witness says, the suspects slowed down and fired three shots at them. One of the two were shot, but their injuries are not considered to be life threatening.
