SAVANNAH, GA (February 8, 2021) – SPD detectives have arrested a suspect who fired multiple rounds at an occupied vehicle on Kentucky Avenue early Feb. 4.
The suspect, 18-year-old Jamir Rashad Lewis, was booked into the Chatham County jail on Feb. 5 on two counts of aggravated assault.
According to an investigation, the female victim was driving on Kentucky Avenue around 12:50 a.m. when a vehicle made a sudden stop in front of her. An occupant in the other vehicle fired multiple shots at her vehicle and then sped from the scene.
