Suspect charged in Tuesday night shooting of Northaven teen

A man suspected of shooting a teenager in Northaven last Tuesday night surrendered to Sheriff's detectives Thursday. 

Officials said Billy Biggs, Jr., 21, of Frayser, was charged with attempted 2nd degree murder.

Just after 8pm Tuesday, Random Fryerson, 19, was shot after he and Biggs got into a fight in Goodman Park on Breckenwood near Northaven Drive.

Witnesses said Biggs chased Fryerson around the park and shot at him several times.  Bullets narrowly missed a group of young men playing basketball nearby.

After the shooting, some of Fryerson's friends took him to a Shelby County Fire Station just around the corner. Fryerson was taken to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis where he was treated and released.
