Savannah State student dead after shooting at Edgewater Trace apartments

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting at the Edgewater Trace apartments Sunday night.

Police arrived just before 10 p.m. and found 24-year-old Marcus Drummer with life-threatening injuries. Drummer later succumbed to his injuries. Representatives with Savannah State University confirm that Mr. Drummer was a student at Savannah State.

The mother of one of Drummer’s friends says Drummer was a sweet young man, but her son was too shaken by Drummer’s death to speak with a WTOC reporter on Monday.

None of the residents or anyone from neighboring church spoke about the shooting, saying that they weren’t there when it happened or just saying not to worry about it.

SPD says detectives are still trying to figure out what led up to the fatal shooting.

Police are investigating but have no suspect information available at this time.
