Violent Crimes detectives of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are seeking information on a shooting this afternoon on Savannah’s Southside.

"At 11:50 a.m. Metro responded to Memorial University Medical Center where Rashawn Byrd, 26, sought treatment for a gunshot wound," police say.

"Byrd was shot minutes earlier at an apartment complex on the 8500 block of Waters Avenue. He arrived at MUMC in a privately owned vehicle in critical condition."

Investigators believe this to be a targeted shooting.

The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20s, standing 5-9 to 5-10.

    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.
