Savannah-Chatham Metro Police are investigating after two days of confrontations in Yamacraw Village led to shots being fired on Factors Walk Thursday night. The shooting victim in custody and police are continuing to search for his assailant.
Maurice Leonard Baker, 25, of a Holland Dr. address, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center following the 6 p.m. shooting. After treatment, Baker was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
