Officials: Officer, robbery suspect dead in coastal Georgia

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Officials: Officer, robbery suspect dead in coastal Georgia Savannah (Ga) fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 1153c5b5-b01c-5729-ac90-4d71dd597716

Authorities say a robbery suspect in coastal Georgia fatally shot a police officer and wounded his colleague before running away and being fatally shot afterward by another officer during a manhunt.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says 50-year-old Savannah Police Sgt. Kelvin Ansari and 49-year-old robbery suspect Edward Fuller III were pronounced dead at a hospital.

A statement from Georgia’s top law enforcement agency says Ansari and Officer Douglas Thomas had answered a call about a person robbed outside a Savannah barber shop Saturday evening. It says the suspect got out of a vehicle and fired on them, striking Ansari and Thomas.

Authorities say Fuller was later spotted emerging from a backyard shed, pointing a gun at officers, when he was shot.

Thomas was treated at the hospital and released.

Police in coastal Georgia say an officer has died after being injured while responding to a call.

The Savannah Police Department said in a news release Sunday that officers were following up on a previous robbery call a little after 8 p.m. Saturday. As they approached a vehicle that matched a description they’d been given, gunshots were fired.

Two officers and a suspect were injured and taken to a hospital. Police did not reveal their identities.

Savannah police say the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate the shooting. The second officer involved was treated and released. The suspect’s condition was not immediately available Sunday.
