Club Hush Robbery Suspect Moved from Hospital to Jail

One of two robbery suspects hospitalized after a weekend shooting at Club Hush in Augusta was released from the hospital and immediately transported to the Richmond County Jail.

Derick Brown, 23, of Martinez, pictured above, is being held without bond at the jail on charges of criminal attempt and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Mr. Brown was shot in the knee.

James Pryor, 36, of Augusta, was shot in the neck and remains hospitalized. Reginald Frails, 29, was shot in the buttocks but refused treatment. He was charged with criminal attempt armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Sgt. Dresser said the victims of the robbery attempt have not been charged.
