SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Update- Joe Burke, 24, has been booked into the Chatham County jail on charges of murder and two counts of aggravated assault in connection to the Dec. 4 murder of Kevin Johnson on W. 38th Street.

Original Story- One person was killed and two more were injured in a shooting on Dec. 4 at West 38th and Bulloch streets in Savannah.

According to the Savannah Police Department, officers responded around 5:30 p.m. to the 800 block of West 38th Street. Two gunshot victims were found at the scene and taken by ambulance to a Savannah hospital.
