Sergeant Kelvin Ansari was shot and killed as he attempted to apprehend a robbery suspect.

He and other officers had responded to a robbery that occurred at a barbershop in the 2300 block of Bull Street. The suspect was believed to have left the area but was inside a nearby vehicle. As Sergeant Ansari checked the area the man exited and opened fire on him and another officer, striking them both.

The subject fled into a nearby residential area where he was found a short time later hiding in a shed. As responding officers ordered him to surrender, he exited the shed and opened fire again. He was fatally wounded by return gunfire.

Sergeant Ansari had retired from the U.S. Army and had served with the Savannah Police Department for 10 years. He is survived by his wife and four children.

Dear Sergeant,
Thank you and your entire godly family for your service. May Angels watch over us that you left behind, we have godly men and women from all walks of life. Thousands you may have saved, but we never knew, words that you spoke changed hundreds of lives, we never knew. But we will one day. Because we're still holding the line praying for godly servants like you.
I pray for your family because I had a divine encounter with your mama, up here Charlotte way.
She is so proud of you, but would have never said a word save what I spoke out about my life, she said you never know what people go through.
I know she and your family miss you, so does the community of not only your state, but the world that you helped to make a better place along with your family who supported you in every way.
God Bless You All and Thank You All who supported this godly man.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
May your hearts be healed of all trauma.
In Jesus name.

Kathy Hudson
Acquaintance, mama.
