Police arrest 2, seek 2 in Ellis Square shooting

Crime & Safety

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Two suspects have been arrested in a recent shooting in Ellis Square, including the man injured during the incident.

Meanwhile, police are still searching for two other suspects.

According to the Savannah Police Department (SPD), officers patrolling the City Market on Sunday, July 11, heard gunshots coming from Ellis Square around 3:20 a.m.

Soon after, 37-year-old Onrico Solomon arrived at Memorial Health by private vehicle with non-life-threatening injuries.

Detectives believe Solomon was shot in a disagreement between two parties that “dangerously and needlessly escalated from a verbal altercation to an aggravated assault,” SPD stated.

Last week, the department identified Kareem Harris, 37, as a suspect in the shooting, accusing him of aggravated assault.

He is still wanted, along with one other person.

SPD released still photos from surveillance footage of the unidentified individual, who was wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers during the shooting. The only suspect description provided by police is the individual is a Black male.

Meanwhile, Solomon was arrested Wednesday, July 21, on charges of terroristic acts and threats in connection to the shooting.

Allegra Harris, 30, has also been arrested on a charge of felony false statements. Harris was booked last week but the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office tells WSAV there is not an official photo of her in their system.

As SPD continues to investigate, they’re asking anyone with information on Harris or the unidentified suspect to call the Violent Crimes Tip Line at 912-525-3124.

Information can also be submitted anonymously to CrimeStoppers at 912-234-2020 or online here. CrimeStoppers offers a reward of up to $2,500, depending on the severity of the crime, if a tip leads to an arrest.
