About 6:15 a.m., U.S. marshals and Savannah Chatham Metropolitan police officers went to the 100 block of Marian Circle, authorities said. The recipient of the warrant, who was suspected in a weekend shooting that left a 24-year-old man dead, started shooting, according to police. Officers returned fire.
“Upon officers’ arrival, they called out the suspect,” interim police Chief Mark Revenew said at a news conference. “He confronted them with a weapon. He was critically injured. We had an officer that was shot.”
