MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man killed in Whitehaven Monday afternoon has been identified as Ladavid Pegues, 23.

The shooting happened in the 1500 block of Dardon Avenue.

Police said they believe the shooting was related to a robbery.

Multiple witnesses said there was an argument taking place outside next to a car. The people involved in the argument got into the vehicle, and that’s when witnesses said they heard a single gunshot coming from inside the car.

The vehicle then began making its way down the street and, as it was making a turn, Pegues was reportedly pushed out of the car onto the ground.

He was transported to the hospital in critical condition but died soon after, police said.

Police are still investigating.
