The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been requested by Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department to investigate the shooting of an officer and another man this morning on Marian Circle.

"Savannah-Chatham Metro officers and members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Taskforce arrived at a home in the 100 block of Marian Circle in unincorporated Chatham County around 6:15 a.m. to locate a suspect in the Jan. 21 homicide on Hudson Street," police report.

"According to a preliminary investigation, the suspect confronted officers with a gun. The suspect and a Metro sergeant were stuck by gunfire. Both were transported to a hospital where the suspect died as a result of his injures. Their identities are not being released at this time," police say.


"In order to ensure transparency in the case, Chief Mark Revenew requested the Georgia Bureau of Investigation conduct the investigation into the case. This is standard officer-involved protocol," police report.
