Police warned Memphis, Tennessee residents of a crazed 19-year-old driving around shooting people on Wednesday night.
Ezekiel Kelly was driving a light blue Infiniti and was responsible for multiple shootings in the city. Police said he later switched to a grey Toyota SUV with Arkansas license tag AEV63K. Police said he was still at large and recording his actions on Facebook.
The University of Memphis sent a message to students saying a shooting had been reported near the campus. Rhodes College, about 4 miles away from the university, advised students on and off campus to shelter in place. “If you do not have to be out, stay indoors until this is resolved,” Memphis police said on Twitter.
In February of 2020, Kelly, then 17, was charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, using a firearm to commit a dangerous felony, and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon. Records show he pleaded guilty to three years in prison. It was not immediately known how much of the sentence he served.
Anyone with information on Kelly has been asked to report to 911 immediately as the suspect remains at large.
