MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Police identified the man they believe killed Susan McDonald.

36-year-old Anthony Olivo is in custody for the killing of Susan McDonald.

McDonald was shot and killed in the 8400 block of Bazemore Road in Cordova on August 1.

A witness identified Anthony Olivo as the person responsible for the homicide.

According to the affidavit, Olivo gave a statement to police that he and another person planned to commit theft and were in the act when the shooting of McDonald happened.

Neighbors said they are still wary following the shooting.

"We have been looking over our shoulders," said Mike Keegin. "Every time I go in the driveway I sit in the car and do a check list to see if I can see anybody."

"Hopefully now they have one, they will get the other," said Barbie Van Eaton.

Olivo has a long criminal history. He has been arrested for driving with a suspended license, possession of cocaine, driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and theft.

"Nothing like this has ever happened here before," Van Eaton said. "When I was going to a garage sale at 6:00 this morning, I just felt so weird. It's nothing I ever thought would happen."

Neighbors are still trying to keep Susan McDonald's memory alive. They have been putting purple ribbons with white roses on mail boxes and memorials where she died.

"It made me feel good that we are emceeing it and we will continue to remember," said Van Eaton.

Olivo is charged with first-degree murder. Police urge anyone with information about what happened the morning McDonald was killed to call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH.

    You'd think 28 wins over the last three years would enough for a program to feel pretty good about itself going into a new college football season, especially for a program that had trouble just sniffing any victories a few season ago.
