Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s detectives have obtained a murder warrant for the arrest of Ronnie Nicholson, 32, in connection to a shooting on the 400 block of West 60th Street that fatally wounded Kawammi Jackson, 36, just before 4 p.m. on Friday.

UPDATE: Nicholson was taken into custody without incident late Saturday evening by The Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force.

"Metro responded to the scene, finding Jackson on the front porch of a residence he was visiting. The Chatham County Coroner pronounced Jackson dead at the scene," police say.

"Investigators believe Nicholson and Jackson were acquainted. A man fitting Nicholson’s description was seen leaving the scene near the time of the shooting. Nicholson faces charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and terroristic threats and acts," police say.

Nicholson is described as a black male standing roughly 5-10 and weighing around 200 pounds. Nicholson is considered to be armed and dangerous. Anyone aware of his location should call 911 immediately and avoid approaching him.

  • Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

    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.
