AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Richmond County deputies are investigating a shooting in Augusta that left two people injured Thursday night.

At 7:50 p.m., the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 1900 block Warren Street in reference to a shooting.

There, they learned 24-year-old Keyshawn Ramsey was taken to the hospital after being shot one time in the stomach and suffering a laceration to the head.

Deputies said they spoke to witnesses who said they heard five gunshots but thought they were fireworks.

Investigators arrived to the scene and took over the investigation which led them to a possible suspect who resided at Country Hearth Inn and Suites at 2182 Gordon Highway.

When deputies arrived, they located the possible suspect and observed where he had received at least one gunshot wound. He was transported to the hospital for treatment.

The Richmond County Coroner’s Office says it was not called to the scene. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office says they’re actively investigating the case.

It’s not the first problem at the hotel:

  • A man was shot there on Oct. 1, according to earlier reports from News 12. That shooting happened at 9:53 a.m. and a man suffered at least one gunshot wound and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
  • And on June 19, a kidnapping happened at the hotel. Robert Lee Kyler was suspected of kidnapping a 19-year-old woman, Destiny Ard, at gunpoint at the Country Hearth Inn.
