SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police will be firing inside two buildings at two locations on Monday night to test expansions to the ShotSpotter system.

Tests will begin at 11 p.m. and officers with the SCMPD, Savannah College of Art and Design Security and technicians from ShotSpotter will be on hand.

The first test will be in the Abercorn and York streets area, and the second test will take place in the Bull and 37th streets area.

While shots will be fired inside buildings, they may be audible to those outside, but there will be no danger to the public.

ShotSpotter is being installed in areas around Savannah in a joint effort by the city and SCAD. It uses a series of sound sensors to detect gunshots and immediately advise on where they are fired.
