SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — Police arrested a suspect in connection to the deadly shooting on Robinson Circle.
The Savannah Police Department (SPD) charged James Dean, 30, with murder and aggravated assault. Dean was taken to the Chatham County jail.
SPD said the shooting happened in the 5400 block of Robinson Circle Thursday afternoon around 1:10. According to officers, the shooting left Dominique Richardson, 33, dead and Isiah Foust, 20, injured. Foust is currently at the hospital being treated for his injuries.
Mayor Van Johnson and Savannah Police Chief Roy Minter showed up at the scene.
“It is absolutely frustrating,” said Mayor Johnson, “absolutely nerve wracking that despite what we do proactively, what we do administratively, we still legislatively have too many guns on the street and the fact is when guns are everywhere they show up everywhere.”
“And they show up in communities like this on a Thursday when people should be living their best lives.”
SPD urges anyone with information to call the Violent Crimes Tip Line at (912) 525-3124, CrimeStoppers at (912) 234-2020 or submit a tip online.
Additional information will be released during this ongoing investigation.
