Man Killed on East Side

Savannah-Chatham police are investigating the city's third homicide of the year. A man was found dead last night on the city's east side. Just after 8pm, police in the area of Skidaway and LaRoche reported hearing what sounded like gunshots. A minute later, they were notified about a possible injured man outside a house in the 6900 block of Damascus Street.

When officers arrived, they found the body of 23-year-old Willie Spaulding lying near the side of the home. He was dead at the scene. Detectives confirm Spaulding had been shot at least once.

After sealing off the street, forensics officers scoured the area for evidence. Spaulding's body has now been sent to the GBI crime lab for an autopsy.

Detectives are asking for your help. Anyone with information about this latest homicide is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020. A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered.
