West 40th shooting probed

Posted on Thu, Mar 7, 2013 at 10:38 AM

Detectives from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are still sorting out the details of an incident that left one man with a gunshot wound Tuesday afternoon.

Luther Ruth, 23, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center after Central Precinct patrol officers found him with a non-life threatening wound to his leg about 3:30 p.m. in the 600 block of West 40th Street.

Police responded to a shooting call to find Ruth and a car that had collided with a parked vehicle nearby. They were advised that Ruth had been standing in front of a house when the car drove by and a passenger fired shots at him.

The car then crashed and the occupants emerged, entered another car and drove away.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637). In the body type, include “CStop2020” plus the tip. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

  • Editor's Note: The real crime is our poverty rate

    The City of Savannah still remains at a stubborn 26-28 percent poverty rate. Poverty disproportionately impacts African Americans, also the community most disproportionately impacted by crime. This is no coincidence and is hardly rocket science, but for some reason many people have problems connecting the dots.
