Man shot, killed on Southside

Posted on Mon, Jul 1, 2013 at 10:03 AM

One man has died and another has been arrested after an early-morning shooting on the Southside.

Marco Cruz, 54, of the 100 block of Tibet Avenue died after being transported by an acquaintance to St. Joseph Hospital with gunshot wounds about 3:13 a.m. this past Sunday.

Homicide detectives charged Venturino Ruiz Suchiapa, 46, of the 10900 block of Queen Ann Court, with murder after Southside Precinct officers saw him driving back to the area of the shooting.

The shooting on Queen Ann Court was reported to have followed a confrontation between the two men.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637). Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward. A confidential Tip Line also is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124.

    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.
