SCMPD search for shooting, attempted robbery suspect


Savannah-Chatham Metro Police are investigating a reported shooting and robbery attempt of a Jacksonville woman early Monday morning in her hotel room on Savannah’s south side.

At approximately 2 a.m., a 35-year-old woman, who works as an escort, allowed a male subject in to her room at the EconoLodge on the 7500 block of Abercorn St. This is the second incident under investigation at the same hotel. 

Before exiting, the suspect pulled a gun from his pocket and demanded cash. The victim produced no money and was shot before the suspect fled. She sustained non-life threatening injures.

SCMPD responded to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where the victim sought treatment.

The suspect is described as a black male standing about 5 feet 6 inches tall, with a small afro haircut. He may be driving a white Dodge Magnum with a paper tag.

Anyone with information on this case should call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
