MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police say a man fatally shot his brother’s friend early Wednesday morning after accusing him of sleeping with his girlfriend.
Investigators said Eulices Lorentes Cruz, 55, fired several shots into a car in the 1043 block of Treadwell Street as his brother and his brother’s friend were backing out of the driveway.
Yonisbel Hernandez was killed. The alleged shooter’s brother was uninjured, but identified Cruz as the shooter to police.
Police located Cruz a short time later and said they found a revolver at his home in the 4300 block of Macon Road.

Cruz is charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder.
