A senseless act of violence has claimed the life of a man who was simply taking out the trash in his neighborhood. The victim, whose identity has not been released, was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting on Heard Avenue near North Hollywood Street in North Memphis.

According to Memphis Police, the shooting occurred around 3:30 am on Wednesday morning. The victim was found shot and taken to Regional One Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Family members believe that the victim was ambushed while taking out the trash, and that the shooting was a targeted attack.

Two suspects, Jayln Lewis, 22, and Keith Coffer, 25, have been arrested and charged with First-Degree Murder in connection with the shooting. According to police, the suspects drove by the victim’s home and started shooting, killing the victim in a senseless act of violence.

This tragic incident is not the first time that violence has occurred at this address. According to a police report, a woman was sitting in a car in her driveway with her boyfriend when her ex-boyfriend approached them just hours before the shooting. The woman and her ex got into an argument, and the victim told the suspect that he was being disrespectful. The suspect reportedly said “Oh, it’s on” as the victim walked away, and then ran to a white vehicle, was given a gun by someone inside, and fired several shots at the victim. No one was injured during that earlier encounter, but family members believe that the same person returned hours later and killed the victim.

Memphis Police have not confirmed whether the gunman in both shootings is the same person, but they are investigating all possible leads. The suspect was last seen in a white Maxima, and police are urging anyone with information to come forward.

The victim’s family and friends are devastated by his loss, remembering him as a kind and caring person who was always willing to help others. His community is also mourning the loss of a young life, and many are calling for an end to senseless violence in the city.

Tributes and condolences have poured in from those who knew the victim, remembering him for his warm and generous spirit. His family and friends will deeply miss him, but they take comfort in the memories they shared with him and the knowledge that his legacy will continue to inspire and motivate others.

The victim’s love for life and his commitment to his community were evident in everything he did, and his family and friends will continue to celebrate his life and legacy. His memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew him, and his tragic death will serve as a reminder of the importance of peace and unity in our communities.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Victim’s Memorial Fund, which will provide support to families affected by similar tragedies and promote peace and unity in the community.

Rest in peace, dear victim. Your light will continue to shine brightly in our hearts, illuminating our lives with love and warmth, now and always.
