Columbia County authorities have made an arrest in connection with Monday morning’s shooting at an apartment complex in Evans.
20 year old Trelon Baker was arrested yesterday at his home at Fox Den Apartments in Augusta. Authorities say he allegedly shot 25 year old Jamal Fielding in the thigh when he refused to hand over cash and jewelry while sitting on a bench outside the clubhouse at Westwood Club apartments on Washington Road.
Baker has been charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Three others, including two females, are still being sought.
