WOMAN ARRESTED IN 2 ASSAULTS

SAVANNAH, GA (November 28, 2014): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police ended a month-long search for a Savannah woman Thursday when they located and arrested her for two incidents in October in which a gun was fired at victims.

Shawntavius Shanell Butler, 19, of the 5200 block of Franklin Street, was arrested about 4:30 p.m. on two charges of aggravated assault filed by Metro violent crimes detectives. She also is being held for the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Office.

The first charge stemmed from a shots fired call on the 1300 block of Seiler Avenue about 5 p.m. Oct. 6.

In that incident, three women approached a 25-year-old woman at three different locations in an on-going dispute between Butler and the woman. In the second location, a tire was cut on the victim’s car.

The victim changed the tire and drove to Seiler Avenue where Butler and the women approached her again, fought with her and threw a drink on her. Butler then fired a hand gun at her and left after two more tires on the car were cut.

On Oct. 17, Butler and two other women drove by a house on the 1100 block of Collins Street just before 6 p.m., became involved in a conversation with a 29-year-old man, threw a drink on him and tried to pull him off the porch of a house. Butler then fired twice as he ran into the house. The two bullets struck the entryway of the house beside a room where two children, ages 10 and 11 months, were located.

No injuries were reported in either of the incidents.

2 CHARGED AFTER CRASHES, FOOT PURSUITS

SAVANNAH, GA (November 27, 2014): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police arrested two suspects for endangering children Tuesday and Wednesday after chasing both of them down on foot.

Louis Christopher Williams, 32, was charged with several felonies, including cruelty to children and assault on an officer after crashing into other vehicles and a building and attempting to strike officers with his vehicle while his 6-year-old son was lying on the front seat Tuesday afternoon.

And Chris Andrew Mauney, 38, was charged with cruelty to children and traffic charges after crashing into a dump truck, leaving three children with a stranger and running away on foot just after noon Wednesday.

Williams’ adventure began about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when officers assigned to the Metro Violent Crime Task Force stopped his white Chevrolet Caprice with an expired tag at Burroughs and West 42nd Streets. The officers discovered the child lying on the front seat and became concerned when he seemed reluctant to converse with them.

When police questioned Williams, who had provided a false name, he put the car in gear and sped away, almost running over the feet of an officer. At 42nd and Montgomery Streets, the Chevrolet sideswiped a parked car and rear-ended another before crashing into another parked car on Bull Street.

Officers parked behind the stopped Chevrolet and approached it on foot. As they approached the vehicle, it suddenly sped toward them in reverse, colliding with the unoccupied patrol car and speeding away as the officers jumped out of its path.

An officer in an unmarked car watched the Caprice continue to speed recklessly while no marked car was pursuing it, running cars off the road and striking another vehicle before crashing into a building at Bull and 61st Street. The undercover officer observed Williams grab the child by the nape of the neck and run into an area with bushes where they later were found.

Williams, a convicted felon, was wearing an empty pistol holster on his belt and a magazine to a weapon was found outside his car. He admitted throwing the weapon itself out during the flight. It was not recovered.

Williams was charged with three counts of cruelty to children, aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and multiple traffic violations.

Mauney was found hiding in bushes on Kane Street in west Savannah after he crashed his 2006 Dodge Stratus into the rear of a dump truck, left children ages 7, 4 and 2 who were in his car with a stranger at a nearby business and ran from the scene at West Bay Street and East Lathrop Avenue about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

He was examined at Memorial University Medical Center for complaints of pain from the crash and transported to the Chatham County Detention Center. He has been charged with cruelty to children, following too closely, leaving the scene of an accident and no license on person.

MOTHER CHARGED IN CHILD’S SHOOTING

SAVANNAH, GA (November 27, 2014): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police have charged the mother of a 6-year-old girl who was shot in a domestic dispute last Thursday and added a charge against the man believed to have shot the child.

Shauneequa Monique Jones, 22, has been charged with cruelty to children. The same charge has been added to two other warrants against Brandon Maurice Stewart, 20.

He has been sought since Violent Crimes detectives determined soon after the shooting that the child was shot during a domestic dispute between him and the child’s mother.

Jones had called police to Wheaton Street near East Broad Street about 8:44 a.m. She reported she was walking her daughter to school and heard a noise before her daughter complained and she discovered the child had been shot. Police searched their apartment nearby on Wilder Street and discovered the shooting actually took place there.

Jones’ two children have been placed into the custody of the Department of Family and Children Services. Detectives are seeking the public’s help in locating Stewart.

Anyone with information on Stewart’s location is asked to call Emergency 911. They also can call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

A confidential Tip Line also is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124. (2 photos)
