One man is dead and another was wounded when shots were fired early this morning on Broad Street.

Richmond County authorities say 28 year old Antonio Counts was shot several times.  A second victim was shot in the leg and is being treated at Georgia Regents Medical Center.

The shooting reportedly happened on Broad Street, but the two victims were found in a vehicle near Greg’s Gas Plus on Jefferson Davis Highway in North Augusta.

The men were taken to the hospital for treatment, but Counts was pronounced dead a short time later.
