Murder at Eastside apartment complex; man shot nearby in separate incident


Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are investigating two shootings over the weekend, including one that was fatal to a Savannah man.

David Rashamel Goldwire, 23, was found "deceased in the yard of a duplex on the 2100 block of Clars Avenue Saturday when Islands Precinct Patrol officers responded to a shots-fired call at 6:47 p.m.," police say.

On Friday, Jacob Grant, 26, reported "he was shot through the back window of his vehicle when someone attempted to rob him in the Oak Forrest Apartments on Oak Forrest Drive about 10 p.m.'

He drove to a residence on Gary Avenue in the Tatemville area where he called police. He was transported to Memorial University Medical Center for treatment of a wound that was considered non-life threatening.

Anyone with information on either case is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

A Tip Line also is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124 and most area clergy have agreed to serve as liaisons for anyone who would like to share information with police anonymously.
