SAVANNAH, GA (June 17, 2013): Two men and a woman have been charged in two Saturday shootings in west Chatham County.
Zhaejuan A. Johnson, 17, and Kassandra Diane Perryman, 29, were arrested after a robbery and shooting on Fenwick Village Drive Saturday afternoon. Victor Myron Baker, 51, was charged in a shooting on Larchmont Court Saturday evening.
Johnson was charged with armed robbery and possession of a firearm in commission of a crime after he was shot in a struggle with Michael Perryman, 28, at Perryman’s apartment. He was transported to the Chatham County Detention Center after spending a night at Memorial University Medical Center where he was treated for the wound. Kassandra Perryman was charged with armed robbery.
Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police violent crimes detectives said Michael Perryman was in his apartment when Johnson arrived about 1 p.m., produced a firearm and attempted to rob him. The two struggled over the gun which discharged, striking Johnson on the side of his head. Kassandra Johnson was charged with setting her husband up for the robbery. The couple is separating.
Baker was charged with reckless conduct after Donnie Reed Cantrell, 45, was shot in the foot just before 10 p.m. The two next-door neighbors had argued several times during the day before Cantrell went to Baker’s residence for a third time to continue the discussion. Baker produced a weapon and fired it twice into the ground and struck Cantrell’s foot.
SCMPD detectives continue to investigate both incidents.
