RCSO Investigators Make Quick Arrest in Latest Homicide; Friends & Family Remember ‘Byrd’


Richmond County investigators made a quick arrest in the latest shooting death in Augusta.

Reginald Frank

Jaron Moore, 27, of Augusta, was charged with murder and weapon possession in the death of 39-year-old Reginald Frank, also known by friends as “Byrd.” Moore does not have a violent history, only a series of theft arrests in his past.

The victim was found shot on Barrow Street where he lives at 10:08 p.m. Saturday, and he was pronounced dead an hour later at the scene. During the course of the investigation, Richmond County officers were able to arrest Moore.

An autopsy is scheduled at the GBI Lab on Monday.

The victim, Reginald Frank, is shown here from his Facebook page.
