MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A teen is behind bars after his parents turned him in for shooting someone in the head after a fight in Berclair, police say.
According to police, David Asua, 19, is responsible for shooting victim Jesus Lopez in the head at an Autozone on Summer on Saturday.
Police say Lopez was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but is now in good condition.
A fight broke out between a group of men, but it is not clear what led to the violence.
When officers arrived at the scene just after 1:00, they found a man lying on the ground. Two men attempted to help him before paramedics took him to the hospital.
A witness said he spotted a suspect fleeing in a white truck. A silver Chevrolet SUV was also seen leaving the scene at the time of the shooting and is believed to have headed to a home less than a mile away. WREG went to that home, but no one came to the door.
When police located the SUV, the driver identified Asua as the shooter in the incident.
Moments later, the father of Asua arrived at the Autozone to tell police his son was responsible for the shooting. The father stated Asua came home panicking as he packed clothes and then fled the scene.
After locating Asua, his parents brought his son to officers at the Autozone located at 4394 Summer Avenue. No one answered at a listed address for the family.
Asua was arrested and charged with attempted murder. It is unclear if anyone else will face charges.
His bond is set at $150,000.
