Crime of the Week #1

January 7, 2022


It was New Year’s Eve and Memphis Police officers were called to one more murder in 2021. Raines Station officers were dispatched to a reported shooting at the intersection of Goodhaven Road and Goodhaven Circle, just west of I-55 in south Memphis.

At the scene the officers found a man in the street. He had been shot and was pronounced dead where he lay. Police learned that the victim was walking on Goodhaven Drive when he and a pickup truck driver exchanged words. After shots were fired, the dark colored truck sped from the scene.

Investigators need the public’s help in this investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 528-CASH (2274) for an award up to $2,000.
