The wave of violence sweeping through Savannah has claimed the lives of three more victims.
Police say Kiana Marshall, 21, Alexis Kitchens, 19, and Isaiah Martin, 18, were all found dead in a home in Carver Village Thursday morning after officers responded to a tip that the front door was left open.
Neighbors were heartbroken but told News 3 unfortunately, crime like this has become all too common in their neighborhood, and they say its about time something starts to change.
“People got to find another way besides shooting people,” said neighbor Cynthia Singleton. “It’s just a waste of a human life. God blessed us with life and we supposed to live it to the fullest, stop taking people’s lives.”
Singleton has lived in the Carver Village neighborhood for more than four decades, and said she sees too many young kids out on the streets alone with no respect for the police.
“Those babies could have still been alive probably,” she said. “If somebody heard gunshots and when they heard it called the police and let them do they job. It’s got to stop!”
