SHELBY COUNTY, TN -

(WMC-TV) – The man shot on March 5 in Memphis was not shot by Bartlett police officers as originally thought, according to investigators.

Bartlett Police Chief Gary Rikard confirmed that, although Bartlett detectives did fire at two suspects in the 700 block of Ledbetter Avenue, it was a gunshot from one of the suspects that injured the other in the hip.

During the investigation conducted by Memphis Police Department, suspect Lontrelle Green told officers that it was a shot from his gun that injured Marcus Allen.

It was first reported that Allen was shot by Bartlett officers while the two men were trying to flee the home where officers were serving a search warrant.

Chief Rikard says that Bartlett officers fired a total of 10 rounds when Green pointed his gun at them. None of those gunshots hit either of the suspects.

The three officers under investigation returned to duty since officials found no policies were violated.

Police recovered six pounds of marijuana and several firearms and ammunition from the home.
