    One thing I don’t miss about the South (I grew up in Memphis) is the constant need of some people to make everything about race.

    Black on black shootings at Winchester and
    Castleman, a double black on black shooting on Goodlett, a black on black shooting in the shadowbrook apts. that’s 24 hrs in one police stations area folks. One day. You folks better re think not supporting a more robust and supported police dept which our mayor and council seems intent on destroying through cuts. Or just let it keep rising and we will be Chicago or Detroit .

    Homicide detectives are trying to identify the gunman in a deadly shooting in the beautiful southeast Memphis.

    More than likely, if the police check and find who called and lured the victim they probably find who shot him.
    Him being outside, I would think he was using a cell phone the incoming call is on the phone. Duh….

    What do you expect from that area, I knew someone who lived over there in the early 90’s it was bad then i can imagine its like a war zone now.
