Man shot on Eastside

Posted on Thu, Oct 3, 2013 at 11:28 AM

Detectives are investigating the reported shooting and robbery of a Savannah man this past Wednesday afternoon.

Robert Ward, 26, of the 1300 block of East 57th Street escaped serious injury and refused emergency medical treatment after the 12:02 p.m. incident in the Sunset Park neighborhood of east Savannah.

The victim told responding Islands Precinct patrol officers that he was in the driveway when two males approached, one armed with a handgun. He said he ran into the house and the gunman fired and followed him into the house and robbed him.

The suspects were described as black males; about 5-8 to 5-10, wearing blue jeans. One was one wearing a black shirt and the other a white shirt. The gunman in the white shirt had a very short afro haircut.

Anyone with information on the case 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.

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
