The report of a shooting sent Memphis Police officers from the Crump Station to 840 South Parkway East, in the Soulsville area, at 6:22 p.m. Saturday, April 11, 2021.

At the scene they found 15-year-old Jarvis Triplett in the street. Nearby was an All Terrain Vehicle. Jarvis had been shot several times and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers learned that he had been a passenger on the ATV, heading down Mississippi Blvd. and at S. Parkway E. the vehicle cut across a parking lot at the intersection. At that point occupants of a white sedan fired multiple shot at the ATV.

The white sedan fled westbound on the parkway. Authorities need helping identifying the sedan and its occupants. Anyone with information is asked to contact CrimeStoppers anonymously at 528-CASH (2274).
