Savannah-Chatham Metro Police investigate two separate homicides that occurred Monday evening. 

Police first responded to the 900 block of Garey Avenue at approximately 5 p.m., where they found Dominque Powell, 24, outside a residence in the Tatemville neighborhood suffering from a fatal gunshot wound. 

Powell was recently the victim of an armed robbery on Sept. 7 in the area. Detectives are working to determine if the homicide is connected to the September 7th incident.

March was transported to Memorial University Medical Center with life threatening injuries and succumbed soon after. No other injuries were reported. 

Detectives are working to determine where the shooting occurred and the identities of any suspects. Circumstances leading up to this shooting remain under investigation.
