MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A man is behind bars, accused of shooting another man in broad daylight.

On May 3, Deandra Claxton was shot and killed at the intersection of McLemore Avenue and Phillips Road.

Witnesses said the suspect, Andre McClenton, got in a fight with Claxton seconds before shooting him.

When police found McClenton at the Elvis Presley Boulevard Inn, they found a small bag of what they later determined to be cocaine.

McClenton then told officers the drugs belonged to him, and admitted selling drugs.

McClenton is charged with second-degree murder and possession of crack cocaine with intention to deliver or sell.
