Two dead in 'murder-suicide' gun battle between two cars

Posted By on Sun, Nov 29, 2015 at 10:21 AM

At about 7 p.m. Saturday night, Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute. "The dispute involved two individuals, driving in separate vehicles on Abercorn St. Dispatchers could hear shots being fired from one vehicle at the other," police say.

The dispute continued until the vehicles reached the area of Edgewater Rd near Montgomery Cross Rd. "The driver of one vehicle crashed into the other vehicle. Both drivers were deceased with gunshot wounds upon officers’ arrival at the scene."

SCMPD Violent Crimes detectives, forensics officers and the Chatham County Coroner responded to the scene. "Detectives’ initial investigation appears that the incident is a murder-suicide, but the investigation is ongoing. The names of the deceased are being withheld at this time," police say.

  • 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.

    Maybe, just maybe, some of the outrage is gone because there is a sense that matters are at least beginning to get somewhat under control here?
