Around 10 p.m. Thursday, the Aiken County coroner responded to Augusta University Medical Center for the shooting death of 25-year-old Stashaun Judge, according to a report from the Aiken County Coroner's Office.

The shooting occurred at the North Augusta Gardens apartment complex on West Hugh Street around 9:30 p.m., according to the report.

Police received reports of shots being fired and when they arrived, "a large, screaming crowd" directed them to the building where they found Judge laying on the ground unresponsive, according to an incident report obtained from the North Augusta Department of Public Safety.

Judge had a single gunshot wound to the left side of his upper torso, according to the report.
