Posted By on Fri, Sep 30, 2016 at 10:57 AM

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police detectives arrested Wesley Biddings, 31, in connection to the earlier shooting that injured a man in the 400 block of Yamacraw Village Sept. 29.

Biddings is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

A second man was taken into custody after fleeing the scene of the shooting; however, his charges stem from disorderly conduct not directly related to the shooting.


Officers responded to a shooting that injured one adult male at approximately 5:30 p.m., Sept. 29.

The shooting victim was transported to Memorial University Medical Center with serious injuries.

"Area residents pointed police toward a male suspect who had fled the scene on foot and a second male suspect who fled to a nearby apartment. The suspect who fled on foot was quickly apprehended," police report.

"The second suspect entered an occupied apartment; officers were able to safely remove three children from the residence before apprehending the suspect," police say.
