MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Aaron Harper was indicted on charges of one count of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted first-degree murder, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said Tuesday.

Harper, 19, stands accused of a shooting that happened in February in Parkway Village.

A vehicle was struck by gunshots, which wounded a 22-year-old woman. The four other people in the vehicle were not injured.

Essic Woodard, 47, who police do not believe was in that vehicle, was found unresponsive in the street and later died at the hospital. He had been taking out the trash when he was hit with the stray bullet.

According to neighbors, the gunman took off in a car, smashing into a brick fence while trying to get away.

Harper was arrested two months after the shooting. He is being held at the Shelby County Jail.

Police also linked Harper to an unrelated robbery case.
