Memphis Man Charged With Murdering His Wife
(Memphis) Memphis police have made an arrest in one of three deadly shootings early Saturday morning.
Fifty-four-year-old Patrick Spencer has been charged with Second Degree murder in the death of his wife at their home in East Memphis.
It was one of three separate shootings police responded to in the city within a two-and-a-half hour period.
Police say just before 5 a.m., Lisa Spencer was discovered dead inside the home in the 800 Block of Sumter.
She had been shot in chest.
Her husband told police the two were arguing about insurance and then fighting over a gun when it went off.
Her sons don’t believe it was an accident.
“He pulled a gun on me and put a gun to my face before,” said Danny Davenport.
Two hours before the shooting on Sumter, a 21-year-old was killed at the McDonalds on Ridgeway.
Police say the victim was trying to get into the back seat of an SUV going through the drive-thru when someone in that vehicle shot him.
So far, no charges have been filed.
Also, this morning, two people were shot at a house in the 2300 block of Silver Cove in South Memphis.
At around 2:30 a.m., a 66-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene and a 21-year-old man was rushed to the hospital.
Neighbors say the two victims are relatives and they are shocked that something like that happened on the normally quiet street.
“Hopefully it was nothing random,” said Mya Mimms.
Police do not have any suspects.
