(Memphis) Police have made an arrest in the shooting death of a man near Coro Lake.

There may still be two other suspects on the run.

Friday, everything was quiet at 4811 East Shore Drive, just a day after police say Tyler Gurien was robbed, shot, and killed in his own home.

“Do they realize what time of year this is? It’s Christmas. They didn’t have no heart to do that,” said an unidentified neighbor.

Memphis Police arrested and charged Jonathan Bolden with first-degree murder.

Police say Bolden was with two other men trying to rob Gurien, when one of them pulled out a gun and started shooting.

According to police, Bolden confessed to taking part in the robbery, but did not confess to murder.

“This close to me, I never thought it would happen this close to me,” said the neighbor who didn’t want to be identified, but says she watched Gurien grow up.

He’d been in trouble with the law before, but she says he got his act together and was a good neighbor.

“He would bring our mail in, our garbage cans in. He would do our leaves for us, go to our store for,” said the neighbor.

For the unidentified neighbor, it’s more hurtful because Gurien was like a son to her.

“I don’t know what happened. I just broke down crying.”

“Has it sunk in?” asked WREG’s Elise Preston

“No, I don’t think it ever will. I’m going to miss him tinkering in this garage,” replied the neighbor.

Bolden heads to court Monday.

Anyone with information about the murder is asked to call crime stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
