One person is in custody, charged with murder stemming from an attempted robbery at a Memphis apartment complex.

The murder happened Sunday afternoon at Prescott Place Apartments in the 1700 block of Morlye Street.

Police said Dalvin Smith, 21, is one of two men involved in the violence.

Neighbors told police the victim just got home from buying groceries when Smith and another man confronted him.

They said the man refused to give the robbers what they wanted, so they shot him. When the neighbors blocked the suspected criminals' exit, they opened fire at them too.

Memphis police have not released any information about who the second person may be of if he/she is in custody.
