SAVANNAH, GA (July 31, 2018) – Savannah Police detectives have made four arrests in the fatal shooting of 59-year-old Patricia Sabb.

“This was a senseless act of violence that resulted in the loss of a well-respected member of this community due to no fault of her own,” Chief Mark Revenew said. “We have worked closely with our partners, including Deputy Assistant District Attorney Frank Pennington, to bring charges against these suspects and hopefully provide this family a little relief in a time of tragedy.”

Officers responded to a residence in the 600 block of W. 41st Street just prior to 11 p.m. July 23 and discovered Sabb with a life-threatening gunshot wound. She was transported to Memorial Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.

On July 30, Savannah Police issued murder warrants for Patrick Bryant Nelson, 18; Alex Lee Johnson III, 19; Harvey Zihe J. Cooley, 18; and Marvin Marquan Hayes, 19. Hayes and Johnson were also charged with armed robbery in connection to an incident that occurred earlier this month.

“Our Criminal Investigation Division has worked around the clock on this case, ultimately resulting in the apprehension of these suspects,” said Maj. Devonn Adams, CID commander. “We are continuing our efforts and are working tirelessly to bring justice to families and end the violence affecting our communities.”
