MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man was found dead Sunday after police responded to a shooting call at the Manor Park East Apartments in South Memphis.
Family members identified him as Timothy Pinkins who was visiting a friend at the time of his death. Memphis police said the shooter fled the scene.
One of the apartment buildings had a broken window on the third floor. Neighbors say the victim was shot and then pushed out of the third-story window.
After the victim hit the ground, people on the scene said the gunman walked up and shot him again before dragging his body to a nearby dumpster.
