Public Safety seeking 28-year-old Aiken man after Paces Run shooting

October 13, 2018

The Aiken Department of Public Safety is searching for a 28-year-old Aiken man following a shooting incident Wednesday at the Paces Run apartment complex on Brandt Court.

Marquis Devon Hicks is wanted on charges of attempted murder and possession of a handgun during a violent crime, according to a press release issued Friday by Public Safety.

When officers responded to a reported shooting at Paces Run earlier this week, they found a male victim with a gunshot wound in his left leg.

The ensuing investigation identified Hicks as the person who allegedly shot the victim after an argument, according to the press release.

Public Safety’s Safe Communities program previously had identified Hicks as a violent offender.

Anyone with information about Hicks can call Crimestoppers of the Midlands at 888-274-6372 or visit P3intel.com. Those who respond will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
