Roscoe Graham

Memphis, Tenn. — The Memphis Police Department arrested a suspect Friday in a deadly shooting in Westwood.

Police say 24-year-old Roscoe Graham was arrested for the death of  33-year-old Robert Givens Junior.

Graham has been charged with first degree murder and attempted first degree murder.

Givens was shot on Monday, June 18. He was mowing his grandmother’s lawn in the 3200 block of Alta Road at the time of the shooting.

He was transported to the hospital in critical condition, but was later pronounced dead.

Givens’s family held a vigil for him a few days after the shooting. They said he was a business owner and father of four.

An arrest warrant for Graham shows that another woman at the scene was grazed by a bullet allegedly fired from a Ford Mustang occupied by Graham. A man on the scene returned fire, hitting the Mustang’s rear window.

When Graham returned the car to its owner, the rear window had been shot out, investigators said.
