SAVANNAH, GA. (March 18, 2016): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Violent Crimes detectives are investigating multiple incidents that ended with a 14-year-old female being grazed by a bullet at a residence on the 2000 block of Hawthorne Street, in the early morning hours of Friday, March 18.
Metro responded to the residence at about 6:30 a.m. where the teen was found with a non-life threatening bullet graze. She was transported by ambulance to MUMC for care.
Reportedly, multiple gunshot were fired outside of the residence as the teen slept inside. The residence was occupied by three other juveniles and eight adults at the time of the incident.
Also, on March 17, just after 11 p.m. multiple shots were fired at the same residence. This resulted in damage to the residence and to one vehicle parked on the property. No injuries were reported in this incident.
Investigators believe the residence was targeted by the unidentified shooter. Metro is now searching for a white early 2000s model sedan. Investigators believe the sedan collided with another vehicle on President Street near Harry Truman Parkway, while fleeing the shooting scene. The driver is described as a slender black male in his mid-20s, with a low haircut. There was at least one additional male passenger in the sedan, which was last seen traveling in the area of Yamacraw Village near Fahm Street.
Detectives are following leads to identify any suspects in these cases.
