Detectives of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are investigating a fatal shooting at Fred Wessels Homes adjacent to downtown on Tuesday evening.

"Just after 5 p.m. Metro was dispatched to the shooting in the 200 block of Wilder Drive that injured Marquail Banner, 20," a police spokesperson says. "Banner was transported by ambulance to Memorial University Medical Center in critical condition. He later succumbed to his injuries."

Detectives think "this attack is targeted and not random," police say.

The fatality is the 25th of the year according to our own unofficial tally.
