SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The Savannah Police Department is investigating a shooting Monday night in the 800 block of East 36th Street, between Paulsen and Harmon streets.

Police say it happened around 9:20 p.m. Three men were injured in the shooting and are being treated. There is no word on their conditions at this time.

Police are in the early stages of the investigation and have no information on suspects yet.

Savannah Police Chief Roy Minter and Mayor Van Johnson both went to the scene.

“It speaks to the continuing issue we have, not only in Savannah but in cities across the country, in some cases bad decisions involving guns. Again, we don’t know what the facts are here yet, so just like Saturday night, we’re cautioning people to wait until the facts become known and then they can pass judgement one way or another. We know that the opinions and theories don’t solve crimes, tips do and people knowing the facts,” said Mayor Johnson.

Anyone with information is asked to call SPD’s Violent Crimes Tip Line at (912) 525-3124 or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020. Tipsters remain anonymous.
