A man was shot during a robbery attempt at an apartment complex in Columbia County just after midnight, and authorities say four people are being sought.
Captain Steve Morris of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to Thoroughbred Lane at the Westwood apartment complex off Washington Road in Evans just after midnight.
25 year old Jamal Fielding told police he was sitting on a bench behind the clubhouse when he was approached by two black males and two black females who demanded cash and jewelry. Fielding was shot in the leg when he refused to comply.
One of the male suspects was wearing a dark t-shirt, a baseball cap and a gold chain with a cross. The other was wearing a black tank top, similar jewelry and had gold teeth. Both female suspects were believed to be 17 to 18 years old. One was wearing a light-colored shirt, the other had tight shorts and was wearing her hair in a bun. Anyone with information that could help authorities find the suspects is asked to contact the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.
