Police Seek Victim's Acquaintance in Shooting

A Savannah man is recovering from an overnight shooting which occurred on the City's east side. Savannah-Chatham police were called to a house in the 700 block of East Anderson Lane just after midnight last night. They found a man in the house, suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg.

The victim was rushed to Memorial Health for treatment.

A man who was in the house at the time of the shooting says he heard a gunshot, then found the injured victim sitting in the living room.

Police are looking for an older-model white sedan driven by an acquaintance of the victim. They're not sure what the motive is for the shooting and aren't yet releasing the victim's name.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234.2020.
