UPDATE: Metro Investigates shooting and car crash at hotel on Southside


SAVANNAH, Ga., (WSAV) — Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Violent Crimes detectives are investigating a shooting that occurred in the 11700 block of Abercorn Street Sunday morning.

At about 5:45 a.m., officers responded to the area and found Willie Hall, 44, suffering from life-threatening injuries.

Hall was transported to the hospital for treatment. He is in critical, but stable, condition at this time.




Officers searched multiple hotel rooms, found damage to the car, hotel property, and blood on the outside of the driver door.


A maintenance worker says he heard loud noises but no gunfire.

“We got woken by a loud bang – boom, it sounded like a bomb kind of going off. So I came out of the room it was still dark and didn’t see anything out of the ordinary and just went back to bed. Maybe an hour later or so police were beating on the door asking questions about if we heard anything. And I told them and the detective what we heard. Didn’t see anything,” says Chris Byrd, Maintenance Supervisor. The circumstances leading up to this incident are still under investigation. At this time, the shooting does not appear to be random.

Anyone with information on this case should contact the SCMPD tip line by dialing (912) 525-3124.
