AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) _ Richmond County authorities are searching
for 20-year old Nicholas Johnson in a fatal shooting at the Econo
Lodge on Gordon Highway in Augusta.

Police say 20-year old Tremayne Cobbs was shot in the head about
4 a.m. Saturday and died on the scene. Two others -- 19-year old
Danvanquez Burley and 16-year old Exzavius Bray -- were wounded in
the legs.

Investigators say one group of people opened fire on the other.
But it was unclear what touched off the gunfire.

The slain man's family says he was celebrating his last weekend
before leaving for the Job Corp on Monday.
