Date

Victims in an overnight home invasion at Fox Den Apartments in Augusta are being uncooperative with officers despite one being shot in the foot and the other being struck in the face repeatedly, authorities said.

Around 9:15 a.m. Wednesday, deputies were called to Piedmont Hospital’s emergency room for a gunshot victim.

“The victim reported that around midnight the previous evening, several subjects kicked in the front door to his residence on Fox Trace and assaulted him and shot him in the foot,” Sheriff’s Deputy William McCarty said in a press release. “It is unknown why the victim waited overnight before he went to the hospital.”

The incident reportedly occurred at the victim’s residence on Fox Trace Drive in Augusta. Deputies went to the victim’s residence to investigate and located a second male victim who stated that he was also assaulted by the same subjects. Witnesses say he might have been pistol-whipped.

“That victim had injuries to the face and head,” the sergeant said. “Both subjects are being uncooperative with investigators.”

The investigation is continuing, according to authorities.

  1. Snitches get stitches!!
    This is why the police have a hard time getting the bad guys…because victims refuse to identify. This is why the thugs get away with “accidentally” shooting children. Even parents don’t want to identify because they’re afraid. Augusta is becoming a war zone and, even though I don’t particularly like the guy, Sheriff Roundtree and his deputies hate it.

  2. OF COURSE they are uncooperative, they always are. Either they are actually victims, OR they and their “associates” are going to handle the issue “internally”. The GSW thought he was just going to get a couple of stiches, and a tetanus shot. Yep, it is hard to clean the streets, when you get no help. If there was damage to the apartment, Fox Den should force the resident to assist, but we all know that will never happen either.

  3. Looks like more shootings are on the horizon as payback for this one. Fox Den should make them move and the other residents of Fox Den should protest to Management until these folks are moved out. Would you live in a situation where this type of action occurs without complaining to Management? No excuses here will stand.
