Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Violent Crimes detectives are investigating a shooting on West 38th and Burroughs streets that injured Nigeria Hutcherson, 19, on Sunday, May 1.

At about 1:40 a.m. Metro responded to the scene finding Hutcherson with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. EMS also responded.

Hutcherson was reportedly outside speaking to a relative when at least two female subjects approached, opening fire after a brief verbal dispute. The suspects may have headed south on Burroughs Street.

"Investigators do not believe this crime is a random act and are following leads to identify suspects. This investigation continues," police said. 

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

A tip line also is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124.
