 Metro’s detectives are investigating a shooting that resulted in the death of a 24-year-old man on Sunday, Jan. 21.

"About 1:45 p.m. today officers responded to the 2100 block of Hudson Street and discovered Balil Whitfield in a vehicle dead from apparent gunshot wounds. The shooting is being investigated as a homicide. The circumstances surrounding the shooting remain under investigation," police report.

Anyone with information should contact the SCMPD tip line by calling (912) 525-3124. Information can also be forwarded to CrimeStoppers at (912) 234-2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

The SCMPD jurisdiction finished 2017 with 35 official homicides, though the three fatalities in arguably the highest-profile crime of 2017, the deaths of Scott Waldrup, Gabriel Magulias, and Spencer Stuckey, aren't counted as part of the official tally of homicides.
