GBI Investigating deadly shooting in Savannah


The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating the shooting of two people that occurred this evening while officers were serving a search warrant.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s SWAT team was serving a search warrant for CNT at a residence in the 500 block of West 38th Street about 6:15 p.m.
After SWAT breached the door of the home, they heard shots from inside the residence. Officers said they did not fire any shots, however, in order to ensure transparency, Chief Joseph Lumpkin called the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to investigate the incident.

Two people were transported to a hospital for gunshot-related injuries. One of them died at a hospital. The other has non life-threatening injures.

Anyone with information in the case can contact the GBI’s Statesboro office at (912) 871–1121.
