MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Two people were arrested after a double shooting at a Memphis motel.

Two men were shot around 8 a.m. Wednesday at Welcome Inn, which is located on Summer Avenue, near I-40.

A witness who saw the two men get shot said one of the victims fell as he was trying to escape. The witness said the shooter chased one of the victims down and fired several shots at point blank range.

Both victims were taken to the hospital in non-critical condition.

Investigators’ traced the suspect’s car back to Morgan Baldwin. When detectives called Baldwin, she said she was being held against her will by a man she only knew as “KD.” But Baldwin later admitted that was not true.

Baldwin said she drove “KD” to a drug sale on Summer Avenue. She told police KD “got spooked” when he was there and started shooting. The two then drove away.

Baldwin identified “KD” from a photo lineup as Kedarius Franklin, and the two were charged with attempted first-degree murder.

In addition, Franklin is also charged with possession of a firearm in a dangerous felony, disregarding a stop sign, driving while license suspended, aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, and aggravated kidnapping.
