Metro investigates after body found in street

Posted: Updated:

Metro police are investigating a death in Savannah.

Fifteen year old William Elijah Norman was found dead in front of a house off of West Victory Drive.

SCMPD officials say they were called out around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday in reference to a sick person, but when officers arrived at the scene they noticed a body near the side of the road in front of a house in the 800 block of Victory Drive. 

A woman told WTOC that she heard gunshots around 4 a.m. However, that has yet to be confirmed.

Police closed Victory Drive from Bulloch to Stevens streets for several hours. Officials reopened the road around noon.

The circumstances surrounding the death are under investigation.
