MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A man who initially said he was the witness to a fatal shooting now stands accused as the person who pulled the trigger.

Roy Jordan was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon on Barron Avenue near the intersection of Catalina Road. 

Kenneth Starks, 18, was at the scene when officers arrived. He told them he witnessed the shooting and proceeded to tell officers what he saw.

Officers took Starks to the police station to give a formal statement, but his story changed multiple times.

Investigators said they also found evidence suggesting Starks was the man who killed Jordan.

Starks eventually confessed to the killing and is now charged with second-degree murder.
