  1. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been asked to investigate a Sunday morning shooting by a Savannah Police Department officer.

  2. The City of Savannah’s Human Services Department held a block party to promote awareness of fair housing laws. The event occurred on Saturday and included resources for the community. The block party was an effort between the city, the Economic Opportunity Authority, and the Neighborhood Improvement Association. (WTOC)
  3. City officials celebrate and highlight a new crosswalk that was installed at Wheaton and Cedar Streets. The crosswalk is part of the city’s Vision Zero initiative meant to reduce pedestrian-involved traffic accidents.
