MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A man is charged with shooting and killing another man on a basketball court.

According to the police report, the victim and suspect started fighting on the court at Belz Park on Monday evening. Witnesses said the suspect then fired four shots towards the victim, hitting him at least once in the eye.

Tuesday evening, the victim died from his injuries.

Early Wednesday morning, Ladareion Greer turned himself in to police officers, who said he admitted to shooting a gun four or five times at the basketball court where the man was shot. Greer also said he threw the gun into MLK Park after the shooting so law enforcement officers couldn't find it.

Greer is charged with second-degree murder and tampering with evidence.
