MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man who called police about a shooting in North Memphis was arrested after police discovered he wasn’t who he said he was and had at least 16 active warrants.
Jamal Solid was already charged with aggravated assault, aggravated robbery, theft, domestic assault, and resisting arrest, and is now facing charges of making a false report and criminal impersonation.
Police say when they responded to the shooting at Chelsea and May, Solid told them his name was Larry Moss before being transported to the hospital. They later learned Moss was Solid, and say Solid lied about who he was so he wouldn’t be caught.
People in the neighborhood were the shooting happened have seen Solid in the area before, but had no idea he was in so much trouble.
“That’s a lot of felonies to be walking the street,” one man said.
Solid is being held on $500 bond. He will go before a judge next month.
