Augusta Murder Suspect Gives Creepy Smile for Mugshot!


Shaun Walker ArrestThe Augusta man accused of fatally shooting a man this week gave a creepy smile for his mugshot on Tuesday afternoon.

Shaun Legrandes Walker, 31, of Franklin Street, has been charged with murder in the death of 36-year-old Antonio Ferguson, who is pictured below in a suit. Walker is also charged with attempted armed robbery and two counts of weapon possession, including one because he’s a convicted felon.

The sheriff’s office gave no motive for the crime. A press release simply says investigators were able to link Walker to the deadly shooting.

Walker is a repeat offender with a history of domestic violence, fighting cops, burglary, trespassing, and more.
