SAVANNAH, GA (May 18, 2015) A Savannah woman has been arrested and charged in the  shooting of a Savannah man in the Edgemere neighborhood last Wednesday night.

Shakerra Martrney Heyward, 25, of the 1300 block of Duval Street in the Winter Gardens  neighborhood was arrested by Islands Precinct patrol officers investigating an unrelated incident  in her neighborhood about 4 a.m. Sunday.

She has been charged with five counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm in  commission of a crime after the shooting of Daryl Jackson, 38, on the 1300 block of East 54th Street  last Wednesday.
