SAVANNAH, GA (November 24, 2015): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Violent Crimes detectives are investigating two shootings that occurred on Monday.
At about 10:55 p.m. Metro responded to the 1300 block of East 60th Street where Charles Johnson, 32, was found suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He was transported to Memorial University Medical Center for treatment.
Johnson was reportedly walking near 55th Street when an unknown suspect greeted him before opening fire. Johnson left the scene and sought help on East 60th Street. Investigators are following leads on this case and also working to determine whether Johnson’s injury was self-inflicted.
