Downtown robbery attempt results in homicide

Posted By on Sun, Jul 26, 2015 at 2:16 PM

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are investigating the shooting of a 21-year-old Hinesville man during a reported robbery in the parking lot of a post office Saturday night.

Hakeem Lamar Clark died at Memorial University Medical Center where he was transported after the 11:18 p.m. shooting.

Violent Crimes detectives are seeking information "on two slender black males with hats or caps over their faces who were attempting to rob Clark and three friends in the parking lot at West Bay and Fahm streets when the shooting took place. Both were wearing dark pants. One wore a striped shirt and the other a white shirt," police say.

The four male victims were standing in front of their vehicles in the parking lot, "discussing plans for the night when the two suspects walked up and demanded their valuables. During the robbery, Clark was shot."

  • 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.

  • Editor's Note: Public schools and the Stockholm Syndrome

    Being a public school parent is like being unhappily married: You’re so deeply invested you’re often the last to see that it isn’t working out. Then there’s a crushing realization that the marriage is irretrievably broken and you can never get those years back.
