AUGUSTA, Ga.---One man has been arrested after a man was shot twice at the Community Grocery on 13th Avenue, near MLK Boulevard.

39-year-old Juan Tanksley was shot in the back and the leg at 9:26 this morning.

Investigators say he and 27-year-old William S. Davis met up at the grocery this morning, where they got into a fight. Shots were fired, two of which hit Tanksley. He fled inside the grocery store to find help, and a clerk called 911.

Davis fled the scene in a Cadillac. He was arrested 30 minutes later.

Tanksley was conscious when he was taken to MCG and is now a no-information patient.
