Metro Police are investigating "three shootings that left four injured Monday, including one that was fatal and a second in which the victim was arrested on other charges," a spokesman says.

One man died after he was shot in front of an apartment on the 1900 block of East 51st street about 7 p.m. His name has not been released by investigators.

Earlier, about 2:30 p.m., Rakeem Wright, 24, reported "he was talking to some women on the first block of West 62nd Street when he was shot by someone in a passing car," police say.

"He provided false information to Central Precinct officers who discovered 10 outstanding warrants against him," they add.

A second victim, Regeria Lynch, 19, arrived at a hospital hours later for treatment of her wound. Neither injury was believed to be life-threatening.

Just after midnight Sunday, Aaron Wurtsbaugh, 45, arrived at St. Joseph’s Hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to his arm. He reported "he was delivering pizza at an apartment complex on the 12000 block of Middleground Road when a masked male attempted to rob him and fired at his car as he sped away."

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

  • Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

    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.
