MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two more suspects allegedly caught on camera waving guns inside the Oak Court Mall last month have been taken into custody.

Both Artavius Lipsey and Jaelen Bell were arrested Monday and booked into the Shelby County Jail.

Lipsey was charged with reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of a gun. His co-defendant was also charged with unlawful possession of a gun.

The charges stemmed from an incident inside the mall on Saturday, November 18, during which several young men walked in and out of stores allegedly spewing profanity and flashing what appear to be gang signs. They even made threats against various people, police said.

Eventually, two of the men began brandishing guns.

Later in the video, the men exit into a mall parking garage where one man pulls out what appears to be an assault rifle.

At no point during the video is security seen.

Several days later, Memphis police identified the individuals in the video as Bell, Lipsey and Tracy Woodall. A fourth suspect was also named, but charges have been dropped, according to his attorney.
