Detectives have identified and charged a 19-year-old Savannah man with three felonies "after shooting at occupants of a car in east Savannah on Christmas night," police say.
Devonte Shyheem Green of the 1000 block of Wolf Street has been charged with aggravated assault, theft by receiving stolen property and criminal use of an article with altered ID.
Police patrol officers had responded to the 3G convenience store on the 700 block of Wheaton Street about 7:47 p.m. after witnesses reported an occupant of one car shooting at another car parked near the gas pumps.
Detectives determined that "Green and a female were parked near the pumps when a black 2006 Saturn Ion carrying several people drove up and the female driver went into the store. Green then fired multiple shots into the Saturn on the passenger’s side before driving away in a tan Toyota."
The Toyota was found soon after on East Gwinnet Street just east of Waters Avenue where police had responded to another shots fired call the same night.
Green was charged "after he was identified as the shooter and a search of his residence yielded two semi-automatic pistols, including one that had been reported stolen and on which the serial number had been partially altered."
Anyone with information on the case 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.
