Georgia officer dies after suffering injuries while on duty

By The Associated Press

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) 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.

The officer, now indentified as Sgt. Kelvin Ansari and the suspect both died at a local hospital. 

A second officer was treated and released.

Savannah police say the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate the shooting.
