SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The Savannah Police Department is investigating after one person died and two others were hurt in a shooting near W. 60th and Montgomery Streets Saturday night.
SPD Sgt. Jason Pagliaro says officers responded to Memorial Hospital around 8:15 p.m. Saturday when a shooting victim arrived at the main entrance. When officers arrived, the victim, 17-year-old Alexis Devoe, had succumbed to her injuries.
A second shooting victim arrived to Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Investigators determined that the shooting happened near the intersection of W. 60th and Montgomery Street.
A third person went to St. Joseph’s Candler with a minor injury. Pagliaro says this person is believed to have been a bystander not directly involved in the shooting.
Officers then responded to W. 60th and Montgomery Streets and found the crime scene. The initial investigation suggests that the shooting was not random, Pagliaro says.
As of Sunday morning, Pagliaro says a description of a suspect(s) is not available. This shooting is still under investigation.
Earlier Saturday evening, SPD also responded to a shooting outside of Carey Hilliard’s restaurant on Abercorn Street. SPD says the two shootings are completely unrelated.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the SPD Tip Line at 912-525-3124 or CrimeStoppers at 912-234-2020.
