Man falls 30 feet from warehouse roof


A 47-year-old man is in serious condition Friday after falling 30 feet off the roof of a warehouse.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Criminal Investigation detectives and forensics officers worked to identify the man.

Downtown Precinct patrol officers responded at about 7 a.m. to ABC Supply Co. on the 1300 block of Rogers Street. Police said employees found Russell Aaron Bishop on the concrete floor.

Bishop was taken to Memorial University Medical Center where forensics officers identified him from his fingerprint, according to police.

Officers had been called out to the same location at about 1 a.m. when an employee said a window had been broken and a man was caught on video getting into a truck.

Officers did not find anyone and the building doors were secured, according to SCMPD.

An investigation into the case continues.
