Savannah-Chatham Metro Police are on the scene of a shooting outside of the McDonald's on Victory Dr. at Montgomery St.

The violent crimes unit has closed Martin Luther King Blvd. between 44th St. and Victory Dr., which could have major traffic implications on your morning commute. The investigation of the shooting scene -- which includes a vehicle left in the street -- could take several hours, according to SCMPD spokesman Julian Miller.

A call came into police at 3:05 a.m. about a shooting at the McDonald's location. When police arrived, they found a man in his 20's shot and suffering from life-threatening injuries. He was taken to Memorial Health University Medical Center.

Police have not made any arrests, and ask anyone with information on the shooting to call Savannah-Chatham Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.
