Augusta Teen Killed While Out on Bond for Two Stabbings


An Augusta teen was killed Sunday night while out on bond for stabbing his mother and her boyfriend last year.

Terence Pinder, 18 (pictured), was shot on the 1800 block of Hicks Street and died after being rushed to Wellstar MCG Health, according to Coroner Mark Bowen. Two other males were also shot and rushed to the hospital, including a 14-year-old boy. Their conditions were not immediately known.

The coroner says Pinder lived on Eve Street, which is around the corner from where the weekend shootings took place.

Pinder is the same teen accused of stabbing his mother and boyfriend in August on Watkins Street. He was arrested Aug. 14 for two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of possession of weapon possession.

In the stabbings, the 39-year-old woman called authorities to report a verbal altercation with her son. After the woman called 911, Pinder came back to the home and started arguing with her again. At one point, Pinder ran into the kitchen and grabbed a knife, then returned to the bedroom and stabbed the woman in the arm.

A 36-year-old man overheard the commotion and grabbed Pinder to intervene. Pinder then stabbed the man in the back. The woman contacted deputies a second time.

Both the man and woman were taken by ambulance to the hospital for their injuries. Pinder was arrested the same day and eventually released on bond.

When he was 14, Pinder was taken into custody after admitting to stabbing her mother’s boyfriend. The teen told deputies that he witnessed the man attacking his mother and reacted to defend her, stabbing the man six times with a small yellow pocketknife, according to a sheriff’s report.
