MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Several men were injured and taken into custody following an overnight shooting incident in Hickory Hill.
According to police, they responded to the 3800 block of Clarke Road around 4:30 a.m. Thursday after a man reported being shot in the hand. Tywuan Bonds stated he was walking through the neighborhood when someone ran up behind him and started shooting. Scared, he ran all the way home with the unknown individual chasing him.
While at the Clarke Road home, officers said they located a 2015 black Acura RL and an 2008 white Lexus G47. Both cars were shot up.
Police also noted that the Acura's hood was still hot when they arrived.
Roughly the same time, officers also responded to the 5500 block of Apple Blossom after a man at that location sustained a gunshot wound to the leg. He told police Bonds had been inside his home, but asked him to leave after he became high and started "acting a fool."
That's when Bonds got into a black Acura and started firing shots from inside the vehicle, the victim said.
Once at the hospital, suspect Bonds told police there was yet another shooting victim hiding in his attic on Clarke Road. That man - Cordarin Crutcher - told police he heard the initial gunshots at Clarke and Apple Blossom and went to see what was going on. That's when he was shot in the left knee.
Crutcher reportedly hid in the attic instead of seeking help because he had outstanding felony warrants.
He later confirmed he was at the house on Apple Blossom when the argument broke out and Bonds opened fire. Another person returned fire and that's when Bonds and Crutcher fled the scene.
Darius Hampton, a third person located by police inside the home on Clarke was also taken into custody on outstanding warrants.
