An arrest has been made in the shooting death of a Savannah man who was shot while involved in an alleged home invasion on Fleming Loop Road On May 20.
According to Stewart Cottingham, Supervisory Inspector, United States Marshall’s Services Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, Christopher Grass was arrested on a murder warrant for the homicide of John Evers, 51, of Savannah during an alleged home invasion on the 900 block of Fleming Loop Road in East Liberty County. Cottingham said Grass was spotted leaving a residence which was under surveillance in Port Wentworth Tuesday night and followed to a residence in Garden City where he was arrested without incident.
Grass is facing charges for aggravated assault, murder, and home invasion. He is currently being housed at the Liberty County Jail in Hinesville.
The murder charge stems from an allegation Grass was involved in the home invasion which led to the death of Evers following a gun fight by the home owner who, according to Liberty County authorities, was defending his home.
