Crime of the Week #3

January 18, 2019


Memphis Police officers from the Mt. Moriah Station were dispatched to 3875 American Way — the Fairview Inn and Suites, just south of I-240 — to check a call about a shooting and a person down. On arrival officers found a man lying on the ground and suffering from gunshot wounds.

Fernando Florez Medina was pronounced dead on the scene by arriving Memphis Fire Department personnel. Officers learned that a female black suspect had been seen standing beside Medina after he collapsed. She then was observed fleeing the scene in a blue SUV parked nearby. More information is needed for authorities to make an arrest in this murder. Tips may be called anonymously to CrimeStoppers at (901) 528-CASH (2274).
