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.
