Police are searching for at least one gunman who opened fire last night, wounding seven, at a crowded fair in Savannah.
A large crowd had gathered at the Coastal Empire Fair, located on Chatham County's Savannah, Georgia's suburban south side, when witnesses heard gunshots about an hour before the fair's 11:30 p.m. closing time.
Six of the victims were teenagers between the ages of 14 and 19, said police. The seventh victim was identified as a 36-year-old woman.
A 53-year-old Jefferson County man, a customer at the Rogers convenience store on Old Springville Road, was shot in the stomach or chest area Friday night when he tried to chase down the gunman in a devil's mask who had just robbed the store. He has undergone two surgeries at UAB Hospital since the shooting.
The gunman, Jefferson County sheriff's officials said today, remains at large.
"This is obviously a very dangerous suspect,'' said Chief Deputy Randy Christian. " We are working diligently to ensure he is found and arrested."
