Detectives are investigating three shootings in different areas of Savannah that left two dead and three injured Tuesday night.

Police investigators "have not determined if any of the shootings are related and are seeking witnesses to help identify suspects," a spokesman says.

Dominique Bright, 18, and Syheem Spaulding, 15, died en route to hospitals after a 9:43 p.m. shooting at East 39th and Cedar streets that left Sha’nai Harris, 15, with non-life threatening injuries.

All three were in the street when they were shot.

Earlier, at 9:23 p.m., officers responded to a shooting at East Oglethorpe Avenue and Wilder Street where they found Javaris Smith, 25, of the 6000 block of Oglethorpe Avenue, with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. "He indicated to police that he was familiar with the person who shot him," says the spokesman.

At 10:01 p.m., patrol officers responded to West 34th and MLK Jr. Boulevard where they found Jamon Cody, 23, of the 2200 block of East Gwinnett Street, in the street with gunshot wounds. He was in serious but stable condition at Memorial University Medical Center.

Anyone with information on any of the cases is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637). Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward. A confidential Tip Line also is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124.
