MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Two people accused of shooting and robbing a man who was leaving a Midtown Memphis bar are now behind bars.

Memphis Police Department arrested Marquiz Showers, 24, and Jonathan McLaurine, 15. The pair is accused of the robbery that injured a 57-year-old man  on August 9 at The Pumping Station.

"When the police came and banged on my door a couple of days ago, they said he had jumped his girl really bad," Henry Meadows, who lives with Showers, said. "I am totally shocked."

Showers has had several arrests for things such as burglary and one just over a year ago for domestic assault.

"He seemed like a very quiet guy," Meadows said.

MPD did not release the 15-year-old suspect's picture, because he is a minor and has not been charged as an adult at this time.

The victim is expected to recover.
