SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Police continue to search for suspects in the Tuesday night shooting on E. 31st and Reynolds streets in Savannah.

A man in his late 20s or early 30s was taken to Memorial University Medical Center after being shot around 9 p.m.

John Mitchell, the man who called 911, said he heard seven gunshots in total, five very quick shots and then two more. He says this is nothing new to him or the area.

"I grew up around here," Mitchell said. "I grew up in the days when people would get stabbed by ice picks or things of that nature. People threw hot boiling grits on somebody in one of these lanes around here."

Mitchell said he accepts violence in the area, and in Savannah, as a sad way of life.

Officials say the victim is alive but they are not releasing any more details at this time.
