Police: Help us find teen's killer

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A 15-year-old was shot and killed in Savannah's Victory Drive Jan. 22, just blocks from his school, and police still are looking for his killer.

Savannah-Chatham Metro police asked the the public for help Wednesday.

"Somebody heard or saw something," Detective Sgt. Andre Jackson said.

Elijah still went to his high school classes, earning solid grades, despite having run away from home.

"We've got to have some ownership in the community to answer for things like this," Jackson said.

Gena Taylor, executive director of Savannah's Greenbriar Children's Home, wishes Elijah had seen the sign posted at fire stations, churches and schools across the Coastal Empire and Lowcounty. It's an orange diamond, with the image an adult embracing a child. It says "Safe Place."

"If you feel like you are in any kind of danger in any way go to one of these sites, and they will get you connected to the appropriate organization," Taylor said. "I to think about, his life could've been saved."

Safe Place also has a text help line for runaways or any child who feels they are in danger. Text "safe" plus your street address, city and state to 69866.

Police ask anyone who knows anything about what happened to Elijah Norman to call Crimestoppers at 912-234-2020. Callers remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
