MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police have identified two men involved in a case that lead to an officer-involved shooting on Friday.

MPD identified Mikavyous D. Johnson and Jartavius Lewis, both 18 years old, as suspects in this case. Court documents obtained by WREG suggest that the two teens are connected to several crimes in this city and their run came to a halt when they were arrested.

The pair was arrested in Westwood Friday, following a shooting that left a man dead, after investigators say he shot an MPD officer, sparking an investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The TBI has already identified the suspect who was shot as Latoris A. Taylor, 40, of Memphis. Taylor later died from his injuries.

“TBI agents are working independently to determine the series of events leading to the shooting, including collecting evidence and interviews,” TBI Spokesperson Keli McAlister said.

Prior to the shooting, investigators say that teens were changing a tire to a BMW that was reported stolen Thursday. According to an affidavit, Johnson was in possession of a weapon that was stolen, when he was taken into custody. As for Lewis, he allegedly confessed to being involved in seven different crimes over a week, which also included an Amazon van being stolen at gunpoint.

This is behavior that is being noticed by the leadership within Memphis Police who says auto thefts are up 100 percent compared to last year and teens are a big reason why.

“At two and three o’clock in the morning, a 14,15-year-old should be at home. People think the police are babysitters and we are not,” MPD Chief CJ Davis said.

As for these 18-year-olds, they face multiple charges with the majority of them being levied against Lewis, due to his confession, which includes aggravated robbery and assault charges.

Johnson has been charged with theft of property ($1,000 or less), and possession of a controlled substance: marijuana.

Lewis has been charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated robbery, two counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of theft of property ($10,000-$60,000).

Johnson bonded out of jail today. Both teens are expected to appear in court on Monday, December 12.
