MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Police Department is searching for four teens after a Facebook video showed them flashing guns inside Oak Court Mall.

MPD was notified about the teens showing firearms inside the mall on Nov. 18 at about 11:45 a.m.

Officers went to the mall to find them, but were unsuccessful.

One of the suspects in the video was identified Monday night as 19-year-old Artavius Lynshun Lipsey.

Lipsey is currently wanted for questioning, but also has two unrelated active felony warrants for domestic violence and failure to appear in a felony case.

Tuesday morning, police identified three others who were possibly involved in the video: Jaelen Bell, 19, Terrance Jones, 19, and Tracy Woodall, 18.

Officers said Woodall is also wanted for active warrants unrelated to the video. He's wanted for violating bail, domestic assault, and failure to appear.

"Just dumb, these children ain't got no common sense," said shopper Annie Pruitt. "If these folks find some sense they'll be alright, but that they don't have."

We tracked down photos on Facebook showing many of these guys flashing guns and holding lots of cash at the mall, even bragging about their actions on social media.

"They need to be careful and actually thinking about what they're doing," said shopper Rayon Phillips. "They're too young and actually have their whole life ahead of them."

MPD said it'll be adding more patrols at malls and shopping centers during the holiday season.

In the meantime, MPD Director Mike Rallings said he's disgusted by the recent Facebook live video and the actions of these four men.

"Our young men in this city have to come up with some more productive things to do with their lives other than just acting foolish and stupid things on social media," Rallings said.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of these teens is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
