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.”
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.
