UPDATE: Nicholson was taken into custody without incident late Saturday evening by The Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force.
"Metro responded to the scene, finding Jackson on the front porch of a residence he was visiting. The Chatham County Coroner pronounced Jackson dead at the scene," police say.
"Investigators believe Nicholson and Jackson were acquainted. A man fitting Nicholson’s description was seen leaving the scene near the time of the shooting. Nicholson faces charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and terroristic threats and acts," police say.
Nicholson is described as a black male standing roughly 5-10 and weighing around 200 pounds. Nicholson is considered to be armed and dangerous. Anyone aware of his location should call 911 immediately and avoid approaching him.
Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s detectives have obtained a murder warrant for the arrest of Ronnie Nicholson, 32, in connection to a shooting on the 400 block of West 60th Street that fatally wounded Kawammi Jackson, 36, just before 4 p.m. on Friday.
