SCMPD investigating homicide near 54th and Ash Streets

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah Chatham Metro Police continue their search for a suspect in a shooting that happened earlier Saturday afternoon at a home near the intersections of 54th and Ash Streets.

Investigators have confirmed that one person is dead.

Police say a neighbor called them to check on the victim when officers got there, and that's when officers found the body.

"They found the 40-year old black male who lives in the building dead of a gunshot wound," said Julian Miller, Public Information Officer of the Savannah Chatham Metro Police.

"The investigation is going on, we've got the mobile crime lab here and we're in the process of going through the house at this point and canvassing the neighborhood."

Police are asking for the public's help. If you know anything about the shooting, call Crimestoppers at 234-2020.
