"Collaboration between Savannah Police’s Strategic Investigations Unit (SIU), SWAT and Hostage Negotiation Team (HNT) resulted in the apprehension of a barricaded gunman" on July 12, a Savannah Police spokesperson says.

"Around 1:45 p.m., SIU detectives attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle on 44th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard due to surveillance in the area. One of the passengers, identified as Travis Mobley, 33, jumped out and fled on foot to a nearby business on 45th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard with a handgun," police report.

One individual was inside of the business, but was able to leave.


"SWAT and HNT were called to the scene and used multiple tactics to attempt to get Mobley to exit the building. SWAT eventually made entry into the building at which time Mobley was placed under arrest without incident." police say.

There were no reported injuries.

Mobley was charged with obstruction, criminal trespass, probation violation and multiple drug charges to include, intent to distribute crack.

The driver of the vehicle, Alicia Johnson, 32, was arrested for obstruction and possession of marijuana.
