Crime of the Week #20


It was about 1:30 p.m. May 17, 2023 when a man walked toward his 2022 Honda HRV at the Save Mart, 1648 Oakwood Drive in the Hollywood neighborhood of north Memphis. Just before he reached his car a man came up from behind him and assaulted him.

He was knocked to the ground and the suspect stole a bag. Two other suspects joined the first. They got into the vehicle and as they left the scene one suspect fired a shot, striking the victim in the back.

Memphis Police investigators said one suspect was wearing a black hoodie with the Nike name and logo on the front, black “skinny” jeans. He was armed with a black handgun. Two grainy photos shown here were recovered from a security camera.
