Memphis Shootings

Ezekiel Kelly, 19, allegedly orchestrated several deadly shootings in Memphis that he livestreamed via Facebook Live, leaving four dead and three others wounded according to authorities. Kelly has an extensive criminal background with violent incidents under his belt and now stands accused of an ongoing killing spree that has resulted in multiple felony charges — four people dead and three more wounded as a result, according to police reports.

On Friday night at a Memphis gas station, an unknown shooter fired upon several teenagers parked at their vehicle and began firing, police have reported. Two were fatally wounded as well as another teen and baby boy, police stated. A dark-colored Nissan pulled up and an unknown individual began firing upon the victims who were sitting idly near a gas pump when shooting began from within it, according to Memphis authorities.

Police said two victims aged 15 and 16 were shot in the head while an infant was hit in her leg; all three victims were then transported to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital where they remain critical conditions. It’s suspected that their assailant fled in a blue four-door Nissan Maxima.

Two men were also injured in this shooting incident and taken to a nearby Hop-In gas station for medical care before being transported to a hospital in critical condition. Police continue their search for their suspected shooter.

Police believe the shooting may be related to gang activity, and are reviewing video from the scene as well as investigating leads in this investigation. They describe an alleged shooter as a black male of about 5-foot-8 standing and 150 pounds who wears light-colored shirt and pants.

Memphis police responded at 3 p.m. today to reports of gunfire at Hop-In gas station on South Third Street, WMC reports. The shooter – believed to be short Black man wearing white shirt and unknown pants color – reportedly involved was short but described by witnesses as being in his 20s and wearing both white tee & trousers (WMC report).

At around 4:40 p.m. on Crump Street, another shooting was reported and witnesses told WREG that one victim had been shot in the face by a Black man in his 20s who drove up and began firing shots into their vehicle, according to witnesses.

They followed him running from the scene into a wooded area where the person was hiding with a pistol – they called out for them to stop, but instead they took off again, with witnesses following and calling for police help.
