Detectives are investigating the reported shooting and robbery of a Savannah man this past Wednesday afternoon.

Robert Ward, 26, of the 1300 block of East 57th Street escaped serious injury and refused emergency medical treatment after the 12:02 p.m. incident in the Sunset Park neighborhood of east Savannah.

The victim told responding Islands Precinct patrol officers that he was in the driveway when two males approached, one armed with a handgun. He said he ran into the house and the gunman fired and followed him into the house and robbed him.

The suspects were described as black males; about 5-8 to 5-10, wearing blue jeans. One was one wearing a black shirt and the other a white shirt. The gunman in the white shirt had a very short afro haircut.
