MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police were called to the scene of a deadly shooting in Orange Mound overnight.

The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. Monday on Carnes Avenue near Pendleton Street. When police arrived, the victim was lying on the sidewalk suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim's family identified him as 49-year-old Antone Davis. They told WREG he lived on Pendleton with his mom, Debra Davis.

Debra says she found out that her son had been shot after a woman came to her door telling her he was laying in the street.

Not long after that she found him on the sidewalk in front of a vacant house, he had been shot several times.

"Some lady was passing by, and she thought he was my other son," Debra said. "He didn't have on any pants. He had on shoes, socks and a shirt."

He was later pronounced dead by paramedics.

Family members say Davis had been shot two other times before and wasn't perfect.

But they say he didn't deserve what happened to him.

Davis' twin sister was at Le Bonheur with a sick grandchild when she got the news and rushed to the scene.

"We are going to find out who did this. That is my twin," Antonette Davis said.

She hopes if anyone knows something about her brother's murder, they will tell the police.

Call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH if you can help.
