AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) — Richmond County Sheriff’s Office will not file any charges against the Subway Clerk who they say shot and killed a suspect after an armed robbery.
Richmond County deputies say at around 12:30 Sunday afternoon two men with crow bars tried to rob the Subway on the 1600 Block of Gordon Highway.
Investigators say during the attempted robbery, one of the suspects struck the clerk’s 14-year-old son, who was in the store at the time, in the head with the crowbar, injuring the teen. That’s when deputies say the clerk fired shots at both of the suspects. One of the gun shots hit Cornelius Lamar Harrison, 24, from Greensboro, North Carolina in the upper torso and later died.
The second suspect, Howard Maurice Harris, 25, of Durham, North Carolina, was arrested Monday, Aug. 22 . Deputies said around 3 a.m. Monday, they responded to the Courtyard Marriott on Stevens Creek Road after a call about a suspicious person. They found Harris had a possible medical episode and he was taken to the hospital, according to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.
