Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are seeking info on the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old male early last Tuesday morning, May 19, in a public housing complex.

Anthony Crawford was transported to Memorial University Medical Center where he was declared dead after the 12:13 a.m. shooting.

"He was found on the sidewalk of an apartment in the Fred Wessels Homes at Burney Drive and East Oglethorpe Avenue when Downtown Precinct patrol officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert," police say.

"The teen had a history with SCMPD and was treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound on April 1 when he reported someone fired at him while he was riding his bicycle on the 1300 block of East 39th Street."

Violent Crimes detectives spent the night canvassing the area and trying to establish the crime scene.
