Two Accidents Claim Two Lives in Aiken County

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was called to the scene of a deadly shooting Saturday night in Thomson.

McDuffie County authorities got a 911 call around 11:15 pm about a man who was found unconscious in a home in the 400 block of Second Street in Thomson.  Once inside, investigators say they found the body of 47-year-old Ricky Huff of Thomson.  He had been shot at least one time.  He was pronounced dead at Piedmont-McDuffie Hospital.  An autopsy has been scheduled to be performed at the GBI crime lab in Decatur.

Authorities say the investigation is active and ongoing, but they’re asking anyone with information to contact the Thomson Police Department at 706-595-2166 or the GBI’s Thomson office at 706-595-2575.  Anonymous tips can also be submitted by calling 1-800-597-8477.  You can also download the “See Something, Send Something” mobile app.
