Crime of the Week #38

October 18, 2019


Reports of shots fired brought Memphis Police officers assigned to the Mt. Moriah Station to the 1200 block of Getwell Road, near the intersection with Rhodes Ave., at 10 p.m. Tuesday, September 10, 2019. At the scene the officers found Morrion Rodgers. He was suffering from a gunshot wound and was transported to Regional One Medical Center where he was described in critical condition.

Officers determined that the shooting apparently stemmed from a road rage incident. A white vehicle had been seen fleeing south on Getwell. Because Rodgers died of his wounds on October 12, this has become a homicide case. Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to contact CrimeStoppers.
