Two people were shot, one of them hospitalized following a shooting near Dogwood Trace Apartments.  

At 10:28 P.M.  on Thursday Richmond County deputies were dispatched to the 1300 block of Walton Way in reference to a person that was shot. 

Deputies met with the victim who was at the 2100 block of 3rd Ave to pick up a bucket of chicken from a woman. After the victim left the woman’s house on foot, he reached the fire lane between 3rd and 2nd Ave when he heard 20 rounds of shots being fired near him.  

The victim ran towards the fire lane and met an unknown subject, who he asked to transport him to the hospital. The woman who gave the victim the chicken said she was on the porch when a Gray or Blue truck with rims pulled in front of her home and fired around 20 rounds towards them. The man was shot in the neck, and the woman was shot in the hand.  

No word yet on a suspect.
