Shortly after midnight, sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of shots fired at a home on the 400 block of Gahan Place. Deputies arrived to find Savoy’s body in the driveway.

A man, a woman and their teenage son were inside the house at the time of the shooting, according to a sheriff’s office news release. Though deputies are not confirming if Yanaga lives in the home, there are only two houses on the 400 block of Gahan Place, and county records list Yanaga as living in one of them.

    Just read that the DA has filed MURDER charges, now Tommy’s wife can either tell the truth and save all the money that she would spend on an Attorney and live happily ever after or continue to lie and be broke as a joke in 6 months. I have faith THAT JUSTICE will be served this time..

    Marshall was a good man and did not deserve to be murdered. Typical of him to want to come to someone’s defense. There is a website set up to help with his funeral expenses.

    It’s if you want to help out his family.
