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.

It’s taken me a long time to come to terms with this loss, 4 months and 18 days to be exact. Kelvin, you were my Police Academy study buddy, supporter, brother and you wouldn’t let me give up when I really thought I wanted to. You made me push myself and show everyone that I am a Police Officer, not just a female.

Over the years we did our own thing on the department & didn’t see each other often; but, every time we did run into each other it was like we never missed a beat. I took this loss pretty hard, it’s never easy losing someone who has touch your life in such a profound way. Every time I see your picture somewhere it hurts a little bit more, I just want to remember you by the good times and fun we had. Your smile & kindness will forever be etched in my heart.

May God watch over and protect all those you left behind, those who love and care for you. Rest in paradise my brother, we have the watch from here
