No time for a deep dive today, so just a quick pair of guns:
Eighteen year old Kiara Tatum was killed when a man and a boy fired into a crowd standing outside in Memphis, TN, at about 8pm, from their vehicle. One report said that:
According to Memphis Police Department, 22-year-old Devante Robinson is accused of being one of two people inside a white car that fired shots at a crowd of people on Danville Circle. Kiara Tatum, 18, was killed in the shooting.
The other suspect was identified Tuesday as 17-year-old Jaylen Clayton.
Robinson is charged with first-degree murder, five counts of attempted first-degree murder, and using a gun during a felony.
An earlier report said that:
Clayton is charged with first-degree murder, five counts of attempted first-degree murder, and using a firearm during a felony.
Robinson was out on bond for reckless endangerment at the time, having been in another vehicle from which shots were fired (at children playing outside,) less than a week earlier. And as for Clayton, one of the latest articles I found said that the 17 year old was to be tried as an adult.
Between everything I read, a lot of weapons and ammunition were mentioned, but none named. Amazingly with two guns fired, and reportedly up to five other victims, Tatum was the only one found dead from a gunshot wound. We’re up to DP 2 yet again, but I’ll add DP1 too, since the exact killer will probably go unidentified.
