BLYTHE, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that happened around the 5100 block of Deans Bridge Road.

Around 8:06 a.m. Saturday, the victim was driving north when someone in an unknown vehicle pulled up next to her and shot her.

A spokesperson with the sheriff’s agency says the victim was transported to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

They do not have the suspect in custody, or a description to release at this time. If you have information about this incident, you can call the sheriff’s agency at 706-821-1020.

Chief Jamey Kitchens with the Wrens Police Department says his office is currently working with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office to determine whether the shooting is related to a shooting the same morning at a Wrens Family Dollar. Deans Bridge Road leads to Wrens.

The suspect in that shooting was arrested and identified as the same man arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of 14-year-old Nathaniel Johnson in Aiken County.
