SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department is investigating a shooting in the 12400 block of Largo Drive in Savannah.
According to the SCMPD, a 17-year-old male was shot and sustained non-life-threatening injuries. He was transported to the hospital for treatment.
Metro officers and Savannah-Chatham County school officers responded around 2:50 p.m. The shooting occurred just down the street from Windsor Forest High School.
"When something like this happens so close to campus, you just want to put in any extra step of precaution that you can to make sure students stay safe. If that means having a couple of officers on campus and visible all day long just to make sure anything happening in the community doesn't spill over onto our campuses, that's what they'll do," said Sheila Blanco, SCCPSS.
The actual circumstances leading up to the shooting remain under investigation. Investigators say they do not believe this was a random shooting.
Anyone with information on this case should contact the SCMPD tip line by dialing (912) 525-3124.
