Memphis adds to record homicide total with girl’s shooting

MEMPHIS (AP) — Police are investigating the fatal shooting of an 8-year-old girl at an apartment complex in Memphis.
Memphis police said the girl was killed Sunday afternoon in the Raleigh neighborhood. Police said the shooter is known to them, but no arrests have been made.
The girl’s killing brings the number of children and teens who have been victims of homicide to 32 this year in Memphis, police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph said Monday.
Police also are still investigating the fatal drive-by shooting of a 12-year-old boy on Nov. 4. The boy’s relatives said he was walking home from a corner store when he was shot.
Investigations into at least eight of the child homicides have not resulted in arrests. The U.S. Marshals Service has offered $50,000 for information leading to arrests in the unsolved cases.
With 284 homicides, Memphis has surpassed its record in a year. The previous mark was 228 homicides, set in 2016.
