Police use tattoo stencil to identify gunman in murder of artist

MEMPHIS , Tenn. (AP) - A crumpled tattoo stencil found at a tattoo parlor led Memphis police to suspects in the murder of one of the shop's artists.

Officers have charged three men and are identifying a fourth in the fatal shooting of Chianne Gast at the Top Shelf Tattoo Shop last Saturday.

Two men have been arrested, but police say the gunman, Jeremy Young, remains at large. Young was identified as a suspect in the case after homicide investigators found a stencil outlining the name "Brianna" and the year of her birth, 2004.

Police found a domestic violence report with the same name and birth date. The assault suspect in the case was Young and he was believed to be the girl's father.

Through Young, police identified an associate, Princeton Price, who was already in jail on disorderly conduct charges.
