A Cold Case
It was 7:17 on Christmas night, December 25, 2019, when officers assigned to the Austin Peay Memphis Police station were sent to check out a shooting at Tessland Road and Hawkins Mill.

When they arrived they found an unresponsive man who had been shot sitting in a Volkswagon. Memphis Fire Dept. paramedics rushed Deron Davis to Regional One Hospital in critical condition. He later died.

The officers learned that Davis had driven to a nearby store after celebrating the holiday with his family. His wife reported his phone called hers but all she could hear was music playing.
