AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - One person is dead after a shooting that happened just a little over half mile from where the mass shooting on Sand Bar Ferry Road occurred.

According to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, the shooting was in the 200 block of East Taylor Street.

Upon arrival, deputies found three victims – two adults and one child.

A female victim was pronounced dead at the scene and an adult male was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

An 11-year-old child was transported to the hospital for treatment. The condition of the child is unknown at this time.

The Criminal Investigation Division responded to the scene. The investigation is ongoing.

This comes less than a week after Augusta city leaders approved a new program that helps better prepare for active shooter situations.

The shooting is among dozens that have swept the CSRA in the past year, claiming more than 80 lives since mid-April 2022.
