Drive-by Shooting Sends Two Men to the Hospital

East Hall Street East Hall Street

A drive-by shooting in midtown Savannah last night leaves one man fighting for his life and another man less seriously wounded.

At about 11:45pm, Savannah-Chatham police were called to the 500 block of East Hall Street, between East Broad and Price Streets, for a report of a shooting. One man had been shot in the chest, and another man was wounded in the upper leg.

Witnesses told police that a group was standing in front of a house when some men drove up in a car. They say someone in the car opened fire into the group of people and the men were hit.

At last report, the man wounded in the chest was in emergency surgery at Memorial Health. The other man is expected to recover from the leg wound. Their names have not yet been released.

Police are looking for a gold, late-model Chevrolet, possibly a Malibu. Anyone with information can call CrimeStoppers at 234.2020.
