Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are investigating two incidents "in which shots were fired at houses Wednesday morning, including one in which a teenager received a non-life threatening wound," police say.

Rahim Smiley, 14, was transported for treatment of a gunshot wound to his leg from the 1400 block of E. 36th Street "after shots were fired at the house in which he and other children and teens were sleeping," police say.

"Central Precinct Patrol officers had responded to a call of shots fired by the new ShotSpotter system to find the shooting."


At 1:16 a.m., Downtown Precinct Patrol officers had responded to the 500 block of Yamacraw Village. There they found an apartment where several shots had been fired at windows. Children and women were asleep in the residence at the time but no injuries were reported.
