SAVANNAH, GA (April 29, 2013): Metro violent crimes detectives are sorting out the details of an altercation in front of a nightclub on West Bay Street Sunday that left two men with gunshot wounds.
Jeremy Kenneth Hardin, 25, who is stationed at Fort Stewart, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center with wounds considered non-life threatening when Downtown Precinct patrol officers found him at West Bull and Whitaker streets about 3 a.m.
Nathaniel Jackson, 24, of an Abercorn Street address in Savannah’s south side, called Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police about an hour later from Candler Hospital where he had sought treatment of a less serious wound.
