After false reports, man's gunshot wound accidentally self-inflicted, police say

Posted By on Fri, Mar 25, 2016 at 3:44 PM

Detectives are investigating a shooting that injured a man, Monday evening.

Just after 5 p.m., Metro responded to the 100 block of Scarborough Street to find Jackie Heath, 22, suffering from a gunshot wound on the porch of a residence. Heath was subsequently transported to Memorial University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Originally, Heath reported that a red Crown Victoria with three unknown passengers were involved in the shooting. Upon further investigation of the incident, detectives determined the gunshot wound was self-inflicted. Investigators believe it was accidental.

Additionally, investigators recovered the weapon used in the shooting and found it to be stolen from another county. Charges for Heath are pending.

    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.
