October 13, 2021 - The Jennifer Ross Soccer Complex will be closed Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021, after two separate, unrelated incidents occurred at the facility over past week.

Most recently, a shooting occurred the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021 at the complex parking lot, resulting in the death of Rajah Young, 27, and arrest of the suspect, 26-year-old Mario Wallace. 

The initial investigation determined that the victim and suspect were known to one another, and the shooting was not a random act. No children or other attendees were injured during the incident.

County officials have announced that they will be working to develop more stringent security measures for the facility in the coming days.

Any other witnesses who have additional information are asked to contact police by calling the SPD Violent Crimes Tip Line at (912) 525-3124 or CrimeStoppers at (912) 234-2020.  Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward. CrimeStoppers tips can also be submitted online by visiting SavannahChathamCrimeStoppers.org and clicking “Submit Online Tip.”
