Members of carjacking crew in custody

Four members of what police call a "carjacking crew" are in custody, officials said Tuesday.

They are fingered in a number of crimes, including last week's violent attack on a Southaven man.

All or part of the crew have been tied to at least five car-jackings.

None nearly as violent as the one last week. The victim in that case still has a bullet lodged in his back.

25 year-old Brandon Noe's family was in shock after the horrific crime.

"It's hard to relate to it until it happens to you or someone you know," cousin George Payne said.

The Lenny's sub shop manager had just closed up this Southaven store when he was car-jacked at an intersection on his way home.

He was thrown into the backseat and driven into Memphis by four armed men.

They shot him in the back and dumped in some woods near the airport.
     
"He had crawled on his stomach approximately 75 yards. He saw a porch light," Payne said.

18 year-old Antonio Turner was arrested that night.

Montez Duncan, Anthony Hall, and Christopher Taylor are charged too, with multiple crimes. The most serious being Attempted First Degree Murder.

We cannot show you Taylor's photo because he's a juvenile.

The crew is accused of shooting at least one other person during their month-long spree.

Payne's cousin was, by far, the most severely injured.

"He was scared to death," Payne said.

Brandon Noe still has a bullet lodged in his spine.

A constant reminder of the night he almost died.

Brandon's family said he was back in the hospital this weekend dealing with complications from his wound.

Two teen girls originally found with his car were released without being charged.
