Crime of the Week #14

April 30, 2021


A shooting report brought North Main station officers to Peabody Place at Main Street in downtown Memphis at 9:48 p.m. Saturday, April 17, 2021. There officers found Dylan Lovell, who was suffering from a gunshot wound. Lovell was transported to Regional One hospital where he later died.

Officers learned that Lovell was riding eastbound on Beale Street near Main in a 1987 red Chevrolet Monte Carlo in heavy traffic. A suspect wearing a white hoody, light blue slacks and face mask approached the passenger side of the vehicle on foot and yelled, “Drop it off.”

As the car tried to drive away around other cars, the suspect fired a gun into the car, hitting Lovell. The suspect fled the scene. The investigation continues. Detectives hope these photos will help someone recognize the shooter.
