Augusta Man Found Shot to Death in Car

-

Here is your first look at the victim of Augusta’s latest homicide: Gerald James Clifford (pictured).

Authorities say a deputy discovered the 28-year-old man shot to death in his car Saturday morning. The deputy was traveling eastbound on Bobby Jones approaching the Mike Padgett Highway exit ramp when he happened upon a 2011 White Chevrolet Silverado, which appeared to be a disabled vehicle. The deputy pulled up behind the vehicle and began walking towards the driver side, when the deputy realized the driver had sustained a gunshot wound. The victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The sheriff’s office released no new details on Sunday or suspect information. The homicide marks the 3rd this year for Richmond County.
