MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - An investigation into a man that was found injured on Hacks Cross Road and later died in the hospital has led to an arrest.

According to an affidavit detailing the incident, 29-year-old Theodore Cohen is charged with second-degree murder after a witness saw Cohen leaving the victim at the scene while he was bleeding from his neck.

Investigators say Cohen’s vehicle was traced on traffic cams and later found at a residence in Memphis where he was seen getting into the vehicle.

Officers stopped Cohen and executed a pat-down where a pocket knife was found in a holster. He was taken into custody where he refused to give a statement.

It was discovered that he is currently on probation for an aggravated assault/shooting that happened back in January of 2018.
