Downtown murder victim linked to past murders


Savannah Chatham Metro police are looking for a man relating to a shooting death that happened over the St. Patrick's day weekend.

Investigators want to talk to 28-year-old John Smith about the shooting. He's also wanted for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and fleeing to elude police after the shooting.

Sidney Grant was shot to death outside of Club Frozen on Indian street around 2am Sunday morning. Just outside the St. Patrick's day festival zone. Grant is also no stranger to the law. He was most recently questioned in the Labor day killings of Emily Pickels and Michael Biancasino. The pair were shot and killed on Henry street. In 2010 a grand jury indicted Sidney Grant for the murder of Vandell Bivens.

Police say Grant shot Bivens on Emerald drive in the Frazier Homes neighborhood in October of 2009. He also served time for aggravated battery and dealing drugs. Now police want help finding his killer.

"He was found on Indian street," said SCMPD Public Information Officer Julian Miller. "Their were a lot of people around. We are still trying to collect information ourselves."

Detectives say they want to talk Smith about the murder. He is 5-6, about 200 pounds with short to medium hair and may or may not have a slight moustache. If you have any information call Crimestoppers.
