Savannah mayor reacts to River Street fight

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson said what happened on River Street over Mother's Day Weekend could have happened anywhere.

A Forsyth County family claimed they were victims of unwarranted, random mob attack, but police determined there was an altercation between two groups with alcohol involved.

"We want everyone to remain calm," said Jackson. "We are doing our jobs. The police are doing their jobs. We want all of the United States and people coming in to know we are no different than any other community. We cannot control what people do coming into this community, but we can provide for the safety of the people coming here and we are doing this."
