POOLER -- Police still looking for two of three suspects in connection with a shooting incident that took place Saturday.

 With the help of Savannah Police Department, Chatham County Police Department and Georgia State Patrol, Pooler police were able to apprehend one suspect, Rhondalyn Butler, after a vehicle pursuit Saturday

 Police are actively searching for two other suspects, Cierra Mims and Deandre Mims. Both suspects are to be considered armed and dangerous. If you see either suspect call Police immediately. Suspects are believed to still be in the area.

The shooting incident in Pooler is related to a shooting that took place in Effingham County on Friday in which a 10-year-old girl was sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The victim from Saturday night is still in the hospital with critical injuries. The victim is believed to have been the target from Friday’s shooting as well. The Pooler Police Department and the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office are working closely in this joint investigation.

These incidents are believed to be deliberate and targeted, not random acts of violence. The victim was known to the suspects.

Butler has been arrested and charged accordingly.
