Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Violent Crimes detectives are investigating a shooting on West 38th and Burroughs streets that injured Nigeria Hutcherson, 19, on Sunday, May 1.

At about 1:40 a.m. Metro responded to the scene finding Hutcherson with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. EMS also responded.

Hutcherson was reportedly outside speaking to a relative when at least two female subjects approached, opening fire after a brief verbal dispute. The suspects may have headed south on Burroughs Street.
