SAVANNAH, GA (November 19, 2010) Savannah- Chatham Metro Police are investigating a robbery and shooting that took place on Savannah’s east side this morning.
Just after 10:00 a.m., officers were dispatched to a call of an alarm and possible shooting at Welch Pawn Shop located at 2800 Skidaway Road. The first officer on scene discovered two victims suffering from gunshot wounds.
Both of the victims described the suspects as black males with short hair, wearing all black and baseball caps. The suspects asked to view several items in the store and then started shooting. After the gunfire ceased the men ran out of the business and were seen running east on Rowland Street. It is unknown at this time if anything was taken. A store inventory will have to be completed before that information will be available. Both victims were transported to Memorial University Medical Center with non life threatening injuries.
Anyone with information on the identity of these suspects are asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637). In the body type, include “CStop2020” plus the tip. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
