MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The woman wanted by police for a shooting along Beale Street that sent two people to the hospital has been taken into custody.
Eledria Williams, 28, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder following the shooting on August 8.
That female victim stated she and her friends were walking along Beale when Williams, who also has a child with the father of her baby, approached. The pair got into a verbal argument and that’s when Williams allegedly pulled out a gun and started shooting, striking the woman and an innocent bystander.
The innocent bystander told police he was walking on Beale Street when he heard a gunshot. When he was struck, he jumped through a window to seek cover. An officer placed a tourniquet on the victim’s leg to stop the bleeding.
Authorities said Beale Street was very crowded when the shooting occurred “with thousands of people present.”
