AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - An unknown Black male is wanted for questioning only in reference to a homicide that occurred Oct. 10 in the 2800 block of Peach Orchard Road.

The shooting claimed the life of Nathaniel Mack, 29, of Augusta.

The person wanted for questioning regarding the shooting at a Circle K is described as wearing a brown Carhartt hooded jacket, a black ski mask and black pants.

He was seen wearing black and white socks over the outside of his New Balance tennis shoes. He was riding a black bicycle described as having a white cross beam and a small luggage rack over the rear tire.

Any information concerning the person is urged to contact the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at 706-821-1020 or 706- 821-1080.

It wasn’t the first time for a shooting victim to be found at that Circle K. On Feb. 7, 2020, 17-year-old Deangelo Burns was fatally shot in the 3000 block of Abelia Drive, then driven to that Circle K.

The shooting came amid an outbreak of violent and deadly crimes that’s swept the CSRA since spring, claiming nearly 50 lives. As the largest city in the CSRA, Augusta has been hit especially hard, but the outbreak has affected communities large and small in both sides of the Savannah River.
