Manigo was wanted for double shooting Thursday night on Greenwood Street.

Savannah Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect in a double shooting Thursday night.

According to the Savannah Police Department, officers responded to the 2100 block of Greenwood Street around 11 p.m. and found a 29-year-old female and a 33-year-old male with gunshot wounds. They were transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Detectives say they were able to quickly identify 33-year-old Timothy Terran Manigo, the husband of the female victim, as the suspect. He is described as a black male, standing 6’4” and weighing around 150 pounds. He is known to frequent the 2500 block of New York Avenue.

There was a heavy police presence overnight in the 2500 block of New York Avenue near Maryland Avenue. Police say that scene is related to this double shooting investigation.

WTOC spoke with neighbors on Friday. Not many wanted to be on camera, but they say for the most part that nothing like this happens in the area.

“I’ve been living here 50 years and I still think this is a pretty safe neighborhood. It doesn’t concern me because it’s none of my business," one neighbor said.

One thing all neighbors were adamant about is that they want this incident to be the only one.

“We’ve had a pretty good bit of patrols. I’ve lived here my entire life, and I feel safe," another neighbor said.

Thursday night, some neighbors say they heard shots ringing out on Greenwood Street. Others say blue lights woke them up. They’re still trying to adjust back to normal.

“We don’t have problems in this area. It’s not surprising, because things are happening everywhere," Jermaine Baker said.

Baker's barber business has been up and running almost 12 years on Greenwood St. He doesn't think the incident is reflective of their neighborhood.

“I think it was isolated. I heard bits and pieces. You hear this, you hear that. You really don’t know until the truth comes out," he said.

The two victims are expected to recover.
