Man shot to death in SE Memphis

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man was shot to death in his home on Thursday afternoon on Danville Road at Mallory Avenue.

Family members and loved ones were overcome with emotion as police worked the scene for several hours.

"We don't usually have a lot of crime on this street, so it's very very shocking," said neighbor Demetrius Witherspoon.

Police say the victim was shot multiple times inside his home sometime before 3 p.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

"My neighbor said she talked to him this morning," said neighbor Felicia Gordon. "So it had to happen this morning."

Gordon says she didn't know the victim well but never had any problems with him, or anyone else on the block.

"He walks up and down the street sometimes," Gordon added. "But he wasn't a troublemaker, not that I know of."

Police believe the suspects left the scene in a blue vehicle.
