Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s violent crimes detectives responded to a shooting at approximately 1:30 a.m., March 16, at a residence in the 400 block of East 38th Street.

Officers responded to a ShotSpotter call in the area and found the victim Aahkil Heyward, 22, deceased outside the residence.

The victim’s father, Lewis Heyward, 57, and Tracy Taylor, 53, sustained non-life threatening injuries during the incident.

"Heyward and Taylor were treated at Memorial University Medical Center," said Sonny Cohrs of the SCMPD Public Affairs Office. 

This is an ongoing investigation.

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 and most area clergy have agreed to serve as liaisons for anyone who would like to share information with police anonymously.
