MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The man who fired shots inside Oak Court Mall in March 2014, injuring one person, will spend 14 years in prison.
Otis Reddic Jr., 21, entered an Alford plea on Wednesday to attempted second-degree murder, employing a firearm in the commission of a dangerous felony, and seven counts of reckless endangerment. An Alford plea is made when the defendant realizes he will likely be convicted but maintains his innocence.
Theodis Pitchford, 22, was injured in the shooting. He was at a kiosk with a group of friends when Reddic pulled out a handgun and shot him. Seven people in the immediate area ran to safety.
Pitchford was shot in his side and critically injured, but he did survive.
