Charges against 65 year old James Harvey Black of North Augusta (Edgefield County) have been up-graded from assault and battery with intent to kill to attempted murder for his alleged involvement in a shooting, Sept. 19, according to the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office. Black is accused of shooting his 50 year old neighbor last Monday in his neighbor’s home on Bogus Hill. Black is also the victim’s landlord, and early reports to The Advertiser at the time of the shooting indicated this shooting could have been over issues stemming from an eviction process. At the time of the shooting, the victim was transported by ambulance to a hospital in Augusta for what was believed to have been at least two gunshot wounds. His condition at that time was unknown. However, since then, The Advertiser has been informed that the man has been released from the hospital.
