Crime & Safety

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — A teenage boy was shot and injured Saturday afternoon at the intersection of 37th and Cedar streets.

The Savannah Police Department (SPD) says the shooting occurred at 12:15 p.m. and the boy was shot in his foot. He was transported to a hospital.

SPD says it is questioning multiple suspects and that the shooting was isolated and the individuals seem to know each other.

“I don’t think these shooters need to spend another moment on our streets,” Mayor Van Johnson said at his weekly press conference Monday, of the recent rash of shootings in the city. “If they’ve done it once, they’ll do it again. In my mind, they are armed and dangerous.”

Police urge anyone with information to call 912-525-3124 or CrimeStoppers at 912-234-2020. To submit an online tip, click or tap here.
