Man found shot to death in Fox Meadows home

A man was shot and killed in the 5400 block of Elmhurst Avenue, one street over from Fox Meadows Elementary School and Wilson Park.

Memphis Police Department said the man was shot shortly after 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

Now, police are investigating whether or not Fourth of July festivities could have led to his death.

Memphis Police spent hours investigating, not just on the street where the homicide took place, but also on multiple streets over.

Neighbors enjoyed the sights and sounds of 4th of July, but it is what happened after that now has them shaken.

"It was a beautiful thing it was a beautiful sight," said one neighbor. "I didn't see anything that was out of the way. I just hate the tragic situation because it's normally a quiet neighborhood."

One neighbor said the victim was a longtime resident of the neighborhood, who was quiet and kept to himself.

As fireworks still lay through the neighborhood, those who live nearby wonder if his death could be related to other Fourth of July celebrations.

"It was a mix of gunfire and fireworks," the neighbor said.

Neighbors said gunfire rang into the night.

"It was all in the surrounding areas, even from different neighborhoods," the neighbor said.

Now, they have their guards up as they wait for answers as to what happened.

"Try to take everything under consideration try to do a better job of being more safer," said the neighbor.

There is no description of the suspect.

The man is the 104th homicide victim this year in Memphis, according to MPD.
