Savannah-Chatham police are searching for a suspect or suspects in connection with a double homicide. Police say they received a call just before 10pm last night about the sound of gunfire coming from an apartment house at 12 East 64th Street.

When officers arrived, they first found a young man in the backyard who had been shot and was already dead. Then minutes later, an ambulance crew arrived saying they had reports of another victim. Police went inside the apartment house and found a young man dead on the landing of a stairway. He had also been shot.

Detectives called out a CNT agent because of possible drugs found at the scene. Police are working to notify the families of the two victims.
