 Violent Crimes detectives of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are investigating a shooting at a Lewis Drive apartment late Thursday night.

"At about 11:49 p.m. Metro arrived at the scene where Rudlin Lopez Tello, 20, and Ruben Rios, 30, were suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were transported to Memorial University Medical Center. Rios was in critical condition. Tello sustained non-life-threatening injuries," a police spokesperson says.

Tello and Rios were "with friends outside of an apartment building when shots rang out. The circumstances leading to the shooting remain under investigation," police say.

The suspect is described as a tall slender black male. Investigators are working to determine whether other suspects were involved.

But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
