AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Early Wednesday morning, the Richmond County Sheriff's Office responded to a gas station for a reported shooting. Now, 3 people have been arrested in connection to that shooting.

The sheriff's office responded to the Chevron Gas Station on East Boundary Street just before 1:30 a.m. When they arrived, deputies found 27-year-old Tony McGowen of Wallace Street lying in the parking lot with a gunshot wound. He was taken to Augusta University Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries. While investigating the scene, deputies were told that another victim of the shooting had been brought to another area hospital with a gunshot wound to his back.

An investigation was able to connect 24-year-old Jativisa Jones, 16-year-old Kaovion Dickey, and 15-year-old Phillip Leach to the shooting. Jones was arrested and charged with murder, aggravated assault, criminal attempt armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. He is being held at the Charles B. Webster Detention Center. Dickey and Leach are each charged with murder. They are being held at the Regional Youth Detention Center.
