Savannah Man Convicted of 2014 St. Patrick’s Day Murder

It happened on the evening of March 17, 2014 when most people where in the midst of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

Barry Trevon Williams and Dominque Ellison were at Mississippi and Ohio Streets when James Samuel Harris, Jr. ambushed and shot them.

Ellison was shot five times, two of which where in the head, but managed to survive.

Williams was not so lucky, he died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

Ellison was able to pick Harris’ mugshot out of a photo array and reluctantly admitted to prosecutor Christy Barker while on the stand that Harris was the shooter.

A jury at the Chatham County Superior Court found Harris guilty in the eastside killing of Williams.

Harris was found guilty of murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and recidivist.

He faces life in prison plus 25 years, Judge Timothy R. Walmsley will hold sentencing at a later time.
