Savannah-Chatham police are searching for two gunmen, suspects in an armed robbery and carjacking early today. Two men say they were leaving Club Oz about 3am this morning and were getting into a black Chevy Tahoe when two other men with guns approached them near Bay and Fahm Streets.

They say the suspects held them at gunpoint and took their valuables and their vehicle, then fired the guns as they sped away in both vehicles.

Police spotted a speeding blue Tahoe and gave chase. It ended on East 66th Street behind Candler Hospital where two men jumped out of the SUV and ran.

Police searched using dogs, but came up empty. They found out the blue Tahoe had also been stolen. The missing black Tahoe has 24-inch spinner rims on it and had South Carolina tag number 122 TFK.

Anyone who spots the vehicle is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234.2020.
