MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man has died after being shot in Bethel Grove Tuesday night.
Police said they located the man shot on the 2700 block of Jeffrey Avenue around 11 p.m.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The family identified the victim as Chadric Henderson. Preliminary information indicated that Henderson was killed by someone he knew, police said.
The family told us the person who pulled the trigger did so, with Chad’s young son asleep nearby.
Henderson was a proud father who cared for his son full-time.
“He would take his son to school every morning, making sure he would get dressed. He has been taking care of the boy ever since he was about 3 or 4,” neighbor Raymond Guy said.
That’s how dedicated Chad was. Other neighbors said they recognized he was one-of-a kind.
“We watched him grow up. [A] young educated young man college-bound, basketball player,” Larry, a neighbor told us. “He cut everybody’s yard on this block.”
It may have been his kindness, friend and neighbor Raymond Guy said, someone could have tried taking advantage of.
“I am just sorry to see him gone man,” Raymond said.
No arrests have been made at this time. This is an ongoing investigation.
