After eight shootings in just three days, some communities in Savannah are left feeling scared and possibly terrorized.

The most recent shooting happened Monday night. The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department sent out a tweet saying a male passenger was shot in a car. We are waiting to hear back about exactly where and when this happened. 

Metro's Violent Crimes detectives have launched an investigation into the shootings of two men, including one fatality, on the 200 block of West 42nd Street on Monday, Sept. 6. 

Metro responded to the scene at about 3:45 p.m., locating David Green, 35, and another unidentified adult male who were both shot. The victims were transported by ambulance to Memorial University Medical Center. Green sustained non-life threatening injuries. The unidentified victim's injuries resulted in his death soon after.

Detectives are now looking for a black older model SUV, last seen traveling west on 41st Street.

With a possibility of at least six targeted victims out of these incidents, community members feel that something must be done to end the violence.
