Million Dollar Bond For Oak Court Shooting Suspect

(Memphis) The man charged with opening fire inside the Oak Court Mall and shooting on person, then hiding from police for almost two months is being held on a million dollar bond.

A previous version of this story incorrectly indicated he was released on his own recognizance. That information was pertaining to an earlier case. We apologize for the confusion.

Otis Reddic turned himself in Wednesday at the Criminal Justice Center.

Today, Reddic was indicted.

Police say he fired several shots, one of which hit Theodis Pitchford March 6.

According to District Attorney General Amy Weirich, “Reddic pulled out a small handgun from his orange hoodie and fired once at Pitchford, prompting seven others in the immediate area to flee for safety. Pitchford was shot in the left side and was hospitalized in critical condition, but survived his wound.”

Since then, police have been looking for Reddic who was considered an armed and dangerous fugitive.

Reddic is charged with Criminal Attempted First Degree Murder, Use of a Firearm While Committing a Felony and seven counts of Reckless Endangerment with a Deadly Weapon.
