Crime & Safety

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – A fourth suspect has been arrested in connection to an October shooting that injured three people, including a child.

Marvin Williams, 22, was taken into custody on Wednesday.

According to the Savannah Police Department (SPD), the shooting occurred back on Oct. 24, just before 6 p.m. Officers responded to White Bluff Road and Eisenhower Drive on multiple reports of two vehicles exchanging gunfire.

Shortly after, three people, one being a 5-year-old, arrived at the hospital by private vehicle with injuries sustained during the shooting.

Further investigation confirmed there was an exchange of gunfire between two groups.

“This shooting could have led to the tragic death of a young child,” said Savannah Police Chief Roy Minter after the incident. “The senseless violence and utilization of guns in this community need to stop.”

Kenneth Mack, 29, and Akeem Williams, 27, and both sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting.

Mack was booked on the same day of the shooting with aggravated assault and cruelty to children charges for his involvement in the shooting.

A few days later, on Oct. 26, 26-year-old Parcardi Trappio, was arrested and charged with cruelty to children and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Police later charged him in a separate shooting that claimed a teenager’s life.

Akeem Williams was receiving medical treatment following the incident, but SPD said once he was discharged, he would be charged with aggravated assault, cruelty to children, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana less than one ounce.

As of Thursday, it’s unclear if he was charged. The Chatham County jail did not have his record and SPD couldn’t provide information on his current status.

But authorities have confirmed Marvin Williams was booked at the jail on charges of aggravated assault and cruelty to children in the first degree.
