Burke County woman charged in Morris Village shooting


BURKE COUNTY, Ga. (WJBF) – A woman is facing charges after one person was shot this weekend in Burke County.

Megan Black is charged with Aggravated Assault and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime.

The Burke County Sherriff’s Office and Emergency Management responded to the 100 block of Zerbee Lane in Morris Village for shots fired on Sunday at midnight.

Deputies found a male suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to AUMC with what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.

Black was located and identified shortly after.

Chief Deputy Lewis Blanchard states that this was not a domestic incident, and that Black reportedly decided to take action on an individual that wouldn’t leave her yard.

She is currently in custody at the Burke County Detention Center.
