Elderly Hephzibah Man Shot to Death in Home
Richmond County has recorded its 6th homicide after an elderly Hephzibah man was found shot to death in his home Friday night.
Just before midnight Friday, 911 dispatchers received a call about “suspicious persons” on the 2800 block of Hoods Lane, off Tobacco Road in Hephzibah. Deputies checked the residence at 2832 Hoods Lane and found the body of resident Johnny Juddie Luckey, an 81-year-old white male, according to a press release from sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew.
The victim appears to have died from gunshot wounds. No arrests have been announced in the slaying, which marks Richmond County’s 6th homicide of the year.
“The investigation is currently in its early stages and further information will be released when possible,” Lt. Chew said.
