SAVANNAH, GA (June 16, 2015): Violent Crimes detectives from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are investigating the shooting of a Savannah man this morning, possibly by occupants of a car reported stolen less than two hours earlier.
Jimmy Burns, 27, of an East 40th Street address, was treated for non-life threatening wounds after the 12:53 a.m. shooting on the 1100 block of East 38th Street.
He had been standing in front of a house when a white Honda sedan drove by, then returned. Occupants of the Honda then began firing at him.
A car matching that description was reported stolen from the 200 block of Hampstead Avenue about 11:30 p.m. Sunday.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
