Murder Victim Found in Georgetown Identified

A violent crime in a place we're not used to seeing it brings a bit of a mystery to Georgetown. A man was found shot along King George Boulevard a little after 8pm Tuesday night.

Savannah-Chatham police said the man was found with what appeared to be several gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead a short while later.

Investigators said some people in a car were driving north on King George Boulevard, when they found the man lying in the middle of the road, just east of Sugar Mill Drive.

Despite the violent nature of the attack, police said nobody reported hearing gunshots in that area.

King George Boulevard was closed while investigators worked the scene. The closure kept a lot of people from getting home Tuesday night, since the man was found right near the only entrance to one of the apartment complexes.

Savannah-Chatham Police have identified the victim as  24-year-old Miquel Antwan Osborne. He was identified him through fingerprints at the GBI Crime Lab. An autopsy showed that he died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Detectives have developed some leads in the case and are trying to locate potential witnesses as a result. They are also looking to talk with anyone who may have been in the area and heard or seen anything suspicious between the hours of 7-8:15 Tuesday night.
