Suspect arrested, officer injured after chase on I-55

MEMPHIS, Tenn. —One of the men arrested following a shooting and police chase that left two people injured, including an officer, has been identified.

Kerry Love was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and evading arrest.

It all started around 5:30 p.m. Monday in South Memphis when officers responded to a shooting call at Belmar and Wynton.

"I heard several gunshots outside, but we got down on the ground. So we didn't see anything happening. We were just kind of trying to protect ourselves," neighbor Ebone Miller said.

Neighbors told WREG they heard up to a dozen gunshots around 5:30 p.m.

"It happened so fast. My concerns was just getting my kids down," a neighbor said.

Police said one person was shot and went to the hospital in non-critical condition, while the suspects drove away from the scene.

"When we came out, we just seen cars driving off and guys and people walking over here saying, 'Somebody had just got shot,'" a neighbor said.

MPD said the suspects crashed the black Dodge that they were driving on I-55 near Third Street. The wreck shut down traffic in all directions for hours.

One man was arrested while two others ran away. It's unclear if Love was the man who was initially arrested or one of the suspects who fled the scene.

One officer got hurt during the foot chase but is expected to be okay.
