UPDATE: Detectives seek men in connection with Abercorn Street shooting

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — Detectives are investigating a shooting that occurred near Abercorn Street and West Magnolia Avenue on Friday, Dec. 22.

They are seeking information on two males — a Hispanic male by the name of Ishmael, and a white male by the name of Vince.

According to the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department, officers were called to the area just before midnight.

That’s when they found Ryan Kamalakis suffering from a gunshot wound.

Police say the 24-year-old rode to the area along with Christian Newell, 20, and two other males.

One of the men struck Newell in the head with a pistol, which made the pistol go off and wound Kamalakis.

According to police, the two men left the area with some of the victims’ belongings.

Both Newell and Kamalakis were taken to the hospital for treatment.

The case remains under investigation, but police say evidence suggests the victims were involved in risky behavior at the time of the shooting.

Anyone with information on Ishmael or Vince is urged to call the SCMPD tipline: (912) 525-3124 and/or the Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.

Remember, tipsters can remain anonymous.
