The victim – identified only as a North Augusta teen with the last name Shores – was being treated at an Augusta hospital and was said to be undergoing surgery at 10:40 a.m. Friday, authorities said.

Investigators are obtaining warrants for three counts Attempted Murder, one count Armed Robbery and one count Burglary 1st Degree for each subject.

The home invasion at 1034 Fairview Road happen at 1 in the morning as the 15-year-old victim was playing video games with a 16-year-old boy from Warrenville with the last name Jones.

According to a sheriff’s report, three masked men came into the apartment through an unlocked door. One of the suspect began shooting in the victims’ direction while another went up to the older teen and struck him several times in the face with a gun.

“The subjects then quickly searched the bottom floor of the residence, took the listed Playstation 4 system and proceeded to flee the scene while firing additional rounds into the interior of the residence,” a report says.

Luckily, a sheriff’s deputy was in the shopping center at 4435 Jefferson Davis Highway, heard gunshot coming from the area of Fairview Road and responded to investigate.  A high-speed chase led to the capture of the two suspects around Blackstone Camp Road near Storm Branch Road.

Authorities say the two victims did not live in the apartment and were only visiting. A woman who lives in the home, 35-year-old Wendi McClure, was not injured in the incident. She told deputies she was sleeping when the home invasion occurred and awoke to investigate when one of the fleeing suspects fired in her direction.

The suspects who got away is described as a black male, 5’8″ tall, 120 pounds with black hair wearing a black hoodie black pants and dark shoes.

  1. Jack , no march, no burning down anything and no flipping cars those are the acts of worthless uneducated people .People that commit acts like that are cowards & do so only to have a reason to act like fools claiming its in the name of the injured person just so they can rob a store and steal a 56” flat screen ,some Nikes, & maybe some slim jims . Nope these people ,if one can call them selves “people” can’t ,won’t act normal & demonstrate peacefully , not in their blood !! Two worthless losers ,no doubt in trouble since they were small kids and their parent(s) COULD not or WOULD not do anything to correct their actions ,their lawyers will say they are victims of their environment and ask for a light sentence so they can go out again and commit other crimes, just like the garden center shooting . Nope I won’t buy into that kind of crap EVER ! ! !
