ORIGINAL STORY: The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating a shooting incident that resulted in the death of a young man late Friday night.

At approximately 10:55 p.m. Friday, deputies responded to a report at a local hospital concerning a male victim who had suffered gunshot wounds. The victim, identified as Sadiq Brown, 16 years old from Wrens, had been transported to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries at 11:34 p.m. Friday.

Preliminary investigations have determined that the shooting took place in the parking lot of 2622 Peach Orchard Road, listed online as A Town Wings. According to reports, Brown was shot at least once before being rushed to Piedmont Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Authorities say Brown was reportedly killed during a marijuana deal.

The RCSO has deployed investigators to the scene and is currently gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses. The exact circumstances surrounding the shooting are still under investigation, and no suspects have been announced at this time.

An autopsy has been scheduled as part of the ongoing investigation to determine the precise cause and manner of Brown’s death. Further details will be released as they become available.
