An Evans man was shot in the leg early Monday after four people tried to rob him outside his apartment.
Jamal Antwan Fielding, 25, was sitting on a bench behind the clubhouse at Westwood Club Apartments on Washington Road at about midnight when he said four people – two men and two women – approached him demanding cash and jewelry, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.
When he refused, one of the men shot Fielding in the thigh. The four people then ran away without stealing anything, Morris said.
Fielding described his assailants as: a black man wearing a dark T-shirt with a cross and ball cap and a light-skinned black man wearing a black tank top, a larger gold chain with a cross and gold teeth. The two black women appeared to be in their late teens. One light-skinned woman was wearing a light-colored T-shirt and the other was dark-skinned wearing a bun and tight shorts.
After the shooting, Fielding ran to his apartment, where his girlfriend called 911, Morris said. His injuries are not life-threatening.
