MEMPHIS, Tenn.– A man has been charged after a man was found shot to death inside a vehicle in North Memphis.
Police said officers found the driver, later identified as 24-year-old Dorian Blue, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at Hollywood and Vollintine on May 10 around midnight.
Blue was pronounced dead at the scene.
A witness said they saw a black Dodge Charger with red stripes fleeing the scene on North Hollywood after firing shots at the vehicle the victim was in.
According to the affidavit, investigators retrieved video from several businesses in the area and saw the Charger following a silver Honda Accord before and after the shooting.
Investigators said Cedrick McNeal and the man who was driving the Accord were developed as persons of interest in the homicide.
According to the affidavit, the driver of the Accord and McNeal were driving on Hollywood near Vollintine when the Accord got a flat tire. McNeal drove past him, turned around, and came back to his location.
As the driver turned his car around to get it home, McNeal got into an accident with Blue’s car.
The driver of the Accord said McNeal got into an argument with Blue and that’s when he heard gunshots and saw a muzzle flash from the area where their cars were.
Cedrick McNeal, 30, was arrested Thursday and charged with second-degree murder and convicted felon in possession of a handgun.
Records show McNeal had a previous felony conviction in September 2020 for reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and was sentenced to 2 years.
He is due in court on July 15.
