1 CHARGED IN YAMACRAW SHOOTING

SAVANNAH, GA. (April 11, 2014): A Savannah man has been arrested after a foot chase with Downtown Precinct Patrol officers and detectives following the shooting of a woman in her Yamacraw Village apartment Wednesday.

Brian Aaron Keith, 24, of 5016 Gerald Avenue, has been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, obstruction and reckless conduct after the 2:14 p.m. shooting.

He was arrested after running from the apartment on the 400 block of Yamacraw to the Greyhound/Chatham Area Transit bus station on West Oglethorpe Avenue. He then ran north on Ann Street until he encountered arriving Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police officers responding to the shooting.

Keith has a history of arrests by Metro Police dating to 2007 and was released by the Georgia Department of Corrections in March of 2011 after serving five months of a two-year, six-month sentence for terroristic threats and acts.

Investigators learned a pistol in his possession fired on Wednesday, striking a 22-year-old woman. She was transported to Memorial University Medical Center with non-life threatening wounds.

Metro violent crimes detectives continue to investigate the shooting.
