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 four people – two men and two women – approached brandishing a black automatic pistol and pointed it at Fielding, he said. They demanded 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 group ran away without taking anything, Morris said.
