MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of a delivery driver at a Jack Pirtle’s Chicken.
Memphis Police say 22-year-old Tanner Bolding has been charged with first degree murder in perpetration of robbery. He was arrested at a house on Talley Place in South Memphis, police confirmed.
An anonymous caller told officers about a car that appeared to match the one in the surveillance footage, and Bolding’s girlfriend later identified him as the man in the video.
MPD released surveillance video of the suspect in Monday’s deadly shooting at the popular restaurant on South Bellevue.
WREG was there as officers towed away a blue car similar to the one Memphis Police said they were looking for.
Memphis Police officially identified the victim as Randal Cardwell, 44.
Management at Jack Pirtle’s said Cardwell was a driver for a company that delivered food to the restaurant, and was just making his rounds when he was gunned down in the parking lot early Monday morning.
According to a GoFundMe page set up for Cardwell’s family, he leaves behind his wife, four children and two grandchildren with another on the way.
On the page, organizers say, “This senseless tragedy will forever change the Cardwell family. We mourn your loss and pray that justice will be served.”
