A double shooting on Savannah’s westside on Christmas Eve killed a man and hospitalized a woman.

Michael John Polite, 38, and a 44-year-old woman were shot about 9:30 p.m. near their residence in the 800 block of Elliott Street in Savannah’s Carver Heights neighborhood, said Julian Miller, Savannah-Chatham police spokesman. Both were rushed to Memorial University Medical Center where Polite died. The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening.

Miller said both victims were involved in a conversation with a man in an SUV near their home when that man pulled a gun and shot both of them.

Police said Maurice Jamar Bentley, 31, is wanted on charges in the death of Michael John Polite, 38, on Dec. 24. Polite, a father of four, was shot dead in the 800 block of Elliott Avenue.
