MEMPHIS, Tenn. — MPD detectives are investigating a violent armed robbery that left three people injured.

It all started around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of McLean Boulevard when a woman noticed a man walking towards her when she parked her car.

Police identified the suspect as Kerry Petty.

Once she got out, he sprinted to her and grabbed her purse.

Scared, she said she screamed for help, causing a neighbor to rush out of a nearby home.

The man pulled on Perry’s shirt resulting in a flurry of punches to the face and all three individuals being knocked to the ground.

That’s when someone pulled out a gun and opened fire.

Authorities said Perry was rushed to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

The victims are expected to be okay.
