Augusta Man Killed at Home, Despite Bars and ‘No Trespassing’ Signs


An Augusta man was fatally shot early Saturday at his home on Bleakley Street, and authorities have interviewed his live-in girlfriend.

Charles Alexander Irvin, 50, was shot and transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Coroner Mark Bowen said.

Pamela Freeman, 41, was wanted for questioning in the death. She was located and interviewed. No charges against her were announced.

Irvin’s family say Freeman had been dating Irvin for years and they had been arguing, along with Freeman’s nephew, about medicine for Irvin when the shooting occurred. The victim stumbled next door to his aunt’s house, and the aunt called for help.

Richmond County deputies responded to the 1519 Bleakley St. at 1:22 a.m. Saturday and found the injured man. He was pronounced dead at the hospital at 2:01 a.m. Saturday.

A Google image taken of his three-bedroom home in July shows a small brick structure with bars on the windows and multiple signs for “No Trespassing.” Bleakley Street is off Poplar Street, not far from Beulah Grove Baptist Church.
