SAVANNAH, GA (September 15, 2011): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are seeking at least two suspects in the shooting of a 37-year-old woman on the porch of her house in the 1700 block of Reynolds Street Thursday afternoon.
Aianna Hill was transported to Memorial University Medical Center where she was undergoing emergency surgery after the 5:14 p.m. shooting. Her injuries were not expected to be life-threatening.

Another man in his 20s who had run from police was chased to nearby Duffy Street and found under a house.
