MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person is dead and another in custody after a shooting Tuesday in the Ridgecrest Apartments in Frayser.
Memphis Police reported the shooting in the 2600 block of Woodcliff Drive around 4:30.
They said one person was pronounced dead at the scene. A female was detained.
WREG spoke to Anita Anthony who said that the victim, Amise Gales, was her 24-year-old son. She said he leaves behind a 3-year-old son.
“How am I supposed to tell my grandson he ain’t never gonna see his dad again? Can’t. Can’t,” Anthony said.
She also said that Gales was lovable and was trying to become a rapper. He also loved playing basketball.
Anthony said she was exiting the apartment complex around 4 p.m. when someone ran up and started shooting into Gales’ car. She said he tried to get away and drove through a fence and crashed in another part of the complex.
First responders arrived minutes later, pronouncing Gales dead at the scene.
She doesn’t know why her son was shot, but she believes that it had something to do with a woman that he was ending a relationship with.
“I don’t know the truth yet, but I hope the investigation find out who behind it. I need justice,” Anthony said.
