SAVANNAHSHOOTINGSTwo people walking with a young child along a street near downtown Savannah were wounded in yet another drive-by shooting in the city — one of two weekend shooting incidents.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Violent Crimes detectives seek information on the unrelated shootings that injured three people late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

At about 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Metro responded to the 600 block of East 38th Street where Carlos Roundtree, 20, and Jakeria Maynor, 21, were found suffering from gunshot wounds. Roundtree and Maynor sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported by ambulance to Memorial University Medical Center for treatment.

Roundtree and Maynor were walking on East 38th Street with a small child when shots were fired from a green four-door Buick. The child was not harmed. Investigators believe Roundtree was the intended target.

In an unrelated incident just before 3 a.m. Sunday, Metro responded to a shots fired call on the 600 block of Indian Street. Investigators believe Jared Pollard, 18, was shot at that location while leaving a nightclub. Pollard sustained non-life-threatening injuries. He arrived at Memorial University Medical Center in a privately owned vehicle where he was met by Metro detectives.

Suspect information and events leading up to the shooting remain under investigation.
