BREAKING: Memphis Police Arrest Suspect Allegedly Behind String Of Shootings In City

Law enforcement officials in Tennessee arrested a 19-year-old man after he allegedly recorded himself driving around and shooting numerous people throughout Memphis.

The Memphis Police Department put out an alert on Wednesday night warning of a black male “occupying a blue or silver sedan who is responsible for multiple shootings.”

The Daily Wire is not identifying the suspect due to company policy about not giving notoriety to alleged mass shooters.

The suspect was apprehended after crashing a stolen car.
