Drug Deal Gone Bad? Beech Island Teen Jailed for Double Shooting in Augusta!

JOSEPH STRICKLAND IIA Beech Island teenager has been arrested for a shooting that injured two people Thursday in Augusta in a possible “drug deal gone bad,” authorities said.

Joseph Carson Strickland II, 19, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and weapon possession.

Two male victims were shot Thursday on the 1500 block of Shoreline Drive, off Mike Padgett Highway in Augusta. They both ran to Castle Pines Mobile Home Park where they were picked up and transported to Augusta University Medical Center. A sheriff’s office press release doesn’t list their names or conditions except to say “both victims are being treated.”

StricklandEarly Friday, authorities arrested Strickland and booked him into the Charles B. Webster Detention Center. Witnesses say the shooting may have stemmed from a marijuana deal that went wrong.

A Facebook page for Strickland shows him as an avid fisherman. He was born in Augusta but has a listed address in Beech Island. He attended school at North Augusta High School and has no previous criminal record in Richmond or Aiken counties except for speeding tickets, according to online records.

        But not allegedly stupid. And I’m sure it was the gun’s fault.

          Allegedly not bright, indeed.

        I’m sorry, forgot the cops normally get stuff like this wrong. A white kid shooting up 56 happens every day anymore. Wait…

            More pot, less guns is the answer, eh..? Pot heads and handguns. Both pop off too fast without the right brains behind them.

            Guns and drug-dealing often go together. Drugs are bad for you. Pot, however, like many things, has both benefits and drawbacks. Choose wisely.

    What’s “a drug deal gone bad”? A drug deal is bad.

    Does it mean that the purchaser attempted to abscond with the merchandise without paying? Or perhaps that the supplier accepted the purchaser’s money and then refused to provide the merchandise? I would be shocked to know that such dishonest attitudes were present among the fine citizens who partake of and supply illegal substances. Such attitudes do not bode well for the future.
