SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police are on the scene of a shooting at East 38th Street and Wessels Avenue.

It happened around 9:15 a.m. Thursday morning. A 42-year-old male was shot and is in critical but stable condition at Memorial.

According to police officials, the suspect is described as a black male tall in stature with a slender build potentially wearing black shorts and a gray shirt. He was last seen running southbound from the intersection of E. 38th Street and Wessels Avenue. 

Police don't have a motive at this time, and neighbors in the area said it is a quiet area, but have reported some out of place activities to police. 

"To see this right here is scary. It's scary," said a neighbor who lives near the scene. 

"When I came out and saw the individual laying on the ground out there, it was like 'God, that could have been one of my kids. That could have been one of my grandchildren. A lot of children play out here," said another neighbor. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the SCMPD tip line at 912.525.3124. Information may also be forwarded to CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
