Savannah man shot while leaving sports bar then arrested for outstanding warrants

Shakeem Douse

SAVANNAH, Ga. – SCMPD Violent Crimes detectives arrested a man who’d been shot after leaving a sports bar late Thursday night.

Police responded to Laroche and Skidaway just before midnight to find 22-year-old Shakeem Douse suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

Douse told police he was inside a sports bar where two groups of people were fighting.  The two groups and Douse left the bar and someone began shooting, hitting Douse.  Police say Douse gave them a different name, but when they found out who he really was, they found outstanding warrants for him from other agencies.

Douse was taken to the hospital for treatment, then taken to the Chatham County Detention Center.

Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call the SCMPD tip line at 912-525-3124 or Crimestoppers at 912-234-2020.
