Police search for suspect accused of stabbing, shooting at man

Harry Day

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police are looking for a man they say shot at a man, stole his car, then returned moments later to stab him on a South Memphis street Monday morning.

The victim was found lying in the middle of Englewood Street with multiple stab wounds. Police say he was in extremely critical condition.

The suspect was identified by police as 63-year-old Harry Day.

Police say Day approached a man getting out of his car in the 1100 block of Englewood around 6:15, pulled out a gun and fired at the man several times.

When the victim ran away, Day sped off in his Chevy Silverado pickup, police said.

But moments later, police said, Day returned on foot, confronting the victim and allegedly stabbing him multiple times. He then drove away in a small, dark blu, two-door vehicle.

A warrant has been issued for Day, charging him with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment, as well as weapons charges.
