A Richmond County deputy was shot during a traffic stop Thursday afternoon in south Augusta.

It happened around 4:00 p.m. when the deputy tried to stop a female at Charlestown South Apartments off Peach Orchard Road. Names of those involved have not been released. Both the deputy and the suspect were shot and were taken to Augusta University Medical Center for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.

The investigation has been turned over to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.
