Teen Shot in Savannah Park

Savannah-Chatham police are investigating an attack on a group of teenagers in Forsyth Park late last night. Police say, just after 11pm, the group was walking through the park when a 17-year-old boy was shot. The victim tells police he was attacked by another group of young people who first asked him for money.

Someone in that group pulled a gun and fired, the bullet hitting the young man in the arm. The shooter and the group he was with ran from the scene.

The shooting victim was taken to Memorial Health for treatment.

Police arrested a 13-year-old girl for being out after curfew. Officers want to remind parents that children under 17 who are out after 11pm can be arrested under Savannah's curfew laws.
