An Evans man was in stable condition Tuesday morning after getting shot outside his home Monday.
Julian Derrick Bell, 25, told authorities that he was playing basketball at Wedgewood Park Apartments Monday evening when he got into an argument with two men. Before it escalated, Bell went home about 10:45 p.m., according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
When Bell parked at his home on Evans to Locks Road, he said two men approached him and fired several shots from a handgun into his vehicle, according to the report.
Bell was hit once in the abdomen and twice in the left thigh. He was transported to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he underwent surgery early Tuesday, sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said.
Morris did not provide more information on the shooting or descriptions
of suspects Tuesday morning.
