SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The Savannah Police Department has arrested a suspect for a deadly shooting at Jefferson Street and West Victory Drive.

According to police, 27-year-old Jack Lee Brown was arrested and charged with murder on Tuesday, May 4.

Brown is accused of shooting and killing 22-year-old Latoya Latrice Jones on Sunday, May 2. Jones was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle and later died as a result of her injuries.

According to police, an investigation determined that the suspect fired shots at a vehicle Jones was riding in due to a previous dispute with the vehicle occupants. Police say there is no evidence to suggest this was a random shooting.

“Our detectives worked diligently on this case, resulting in an arrest just 48 hours after the senseless shooting of Ms. Jones,” Chief Roy Minter said in a news release. “Video evidence and community involvement greatly assisted in aiding this investigation and resulting in an expeditious arrest, bringing a suspect to justice and answers to a grieving family. The community is a great asset in our continued fight against violent crime in Savannah. We continue to urge community members to come forward with any information they have on any crimes in Savannah.”
