MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police have ruled a man’s death a homicide after discovering a bullet wound.

Police identified him as 25-year-old Justin Langston.

Police said they received a call at about 1 a.m. July 7 about an car accident at Lenow and Walker.

Officers found a SUV that hit a light pole, with Langston unconscious in the driver’s seat.

Langston was transported to Regional Medical Center in critical condition where he died.

“I’m not an emotional person really, but this is the most I’ve cried since I lost my little sister,” said Will McCarty, Langston’s best friend.

Police later learned he had been shot before the crash when medical personnel found a bullet wound.

Police did not find any witnesses and are still looking for the shooter.

“Somebody knows something. Somebody knows who did this, but they just aren’t telling nobody,” said McCarty.
