One Wounded in Overnight Shooting

Savannah-Chatham police are investigating an overnight shooting which happened less than a block away from where a local soldier was gunned down over the weekend.

About 2am this morning, police received calls from people saying they heard shots fired on West Gordon Street between Barnard and Whitaker. One of the callers said someone was shooting at him. Officers arrived to find a man shot at least once at a house in the middle of the block.

He was rushed to Memorial Health for treatment of what appears to be a non-life-threatening wound. Meanwhile, police searched the area for evidence and canvassed the neighborhood talking to residents.

You may remember, early Saturday morning, a Fort Stewart soldier was shot and killed at Bull and West Gordon. Both investigations are ongoing this morning.
