USA: Memphis, Tenneesee Mass Shooter Captured Live-streamed Day Of Terror Shot 7 People, Killed 4. He Was Let Out Of Prison Early After Attempted Murder Charge. Had Warrant Out For Murder After Release.

Strategiceyes published September 8, 2022: Ezekiel Kelly Caught Alive! All the information we know so far on Memphis shooter!
Strategiceyes reports at 4 minutes that, "According to court records there was an arrest warrant out for Kelly Wednesdsay on charges of FIRST DEGREE MURDER before the shooting spree happened. So this guy did no time for trying to kill somebody initally and had the attempted murder charges dropped. Then he came out and murdered somebody else and had a warrant out for him. I guess he's thinking I'm going to go out with a bang because he already knew he was going to be placed back in custody and possibly spend the rest of his life in prison." He shows us a copy of the arrest warrant.

Do you know what this means? Apparently, he was taken into custody for murdering someone AFTER he was released early from prison. All he had to do was sign a document saying he agrees to show up to court on a specific date for the murder. Well, he obviously did not show up to court on said date as he agreed to on paper. That's so naive for anyone to think a criminal especially a murderer is going to show up to court like a responsible person to be sent to prison. Therefore, because he did not show up to court as he agreed they put a warrant out for his ARREST. This is exactly what people in Illinois have to look forward to with the Commie Democrat Governor's new SAFE-T Act law that goes into effect January 1, 2023. I have to check to see if the same non-detaintable violations applies to Los Angeles County with our Commie District Attorney imposing the ZERO CASH BAIL like Illinois.

The Commie Democrat Governor of Illinois said, "There is no such thing as a non-detainable offense." Can you see how tricky this Governor is? In this Memphis shooter example he was arrested for murder taken into custody or "DETAINED" for a few hours probably, then he signed the document agreeing to appear in court to face the murder charges AT A LATER DATE, paid zero cash bail, and then released back to terrorize the public AFTER HE MURDERED A PERSON.

The suspect arrested in a seemingly random shooting spree across Memphis that sent the city into lockdown was ordered Friday to stay in jail with no bond.

Ezekiel Kelly, 19, was charged after authorities say he livestreamed himself driving around the Tennessee city for hours on Wednesday, carjacking people and opening fire.

He was charged with first-degree murder in the death of 24-year-old DeWayne Amir Tunstall. Police said he shot a total of seven people across the city, killing four and leaving one in critical condition.

Although he's currently only facing charges in one of the killings — which carries the possibility of a sentence of life in prison or the death penalty — additional charges were expected.

Standing before Judge Karen Massey Friday, Kelly kept his head down and spoke softly, a sharp contrast to his demeanor when authorities say he was streaming his rampage on Facebook Live. Massey ordered he stay behind bars without bond.

Police say Kelly started the spree early Wednesday morning when he shot and killed Dewayne Tunstall at 12:56 a.m. in the Berclair neighborhood. The next deadly shooting happened at 4:38 p.m. in South Memphis. That was followed two minutes later with another shooting that left a person injured.

At 5:59 p.m., another shooting in the Nutbush neighborhood left a person injured and shortly after, police say they were made aware the suspect was livestreaming the attacks and making threats to hurt people.

Officials ordered a citywide lockdown advisory at 7 p.m. that remained in effect until Kelly was arrested more than two hours later.

In that two and a half hour window, police say the suspect fatally shot someone while carjacking them. He then opened fire on two others, killing one.

A high-speed chase started after authorities located the suspectand he ultimately was captured.

Kelly had been out of prison for less than five months at the time of his arrest Wednesday. He was previously charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, employing a firearm with intent to commit a felony, and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon. He ended up entering a guilty plea for the lesser charge of aggravated assault and was sentenced to three years in prison in April 2021. He served about 11 months of that sentence.

Kelly was appointed a public defender Friday, although the court will reassess any conflicts when further charges are levied. His next court appearance is scheduled September 13.

A crazed convict who served time for attempted murder was arrested after killing four people and injuring three others in a series of shootings in Memphis on Wednesday — including one that he livestreamed on Facebook, police said.

Ezekiel Kelly, 19 — who has a violent criminal record, including for attempted first-degree murder — launched his alleged rampage just before 1 a.m. and terrorized the city until after dusk, when he was caught during a police chase at about 9:30 p.m., according to authorities.

Officials said numerous felony charges are pending against him.

“This has been a horrific week for the city of Memphis,” the city’s police chief, Cerelyn “C.J.” Davis, said at a late Wednesday press briefing announcing Kelly’s alleged shooting spree.

Memphis police first warned the public to stay away from Kelly, who they said was “armed and dangerous” in a 7 p.m. social media post.

Police have since connected the alleged killer to at least eight separate shootings, Davis said.

Around 12:56 a.m., Kelly allegedly shot and killed a 24-year-old man in his driveway on Glendale Avenue, the police chief said.

Several hours after the initial homicide, Kelly continued his alleged spree, targeting people at random and forcing frightened residents to shelter in place.

Around 4:38 p.m., he allegedly shot a man who had been sitting in his car on South Parkway East multiple times. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two minutes later, Kelly reportedly fired his gun at a woman near Norris Road and Interstate 240. She suffered a bullet wound to the leg and was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.

Just before 6 p.m., the crazed gunman opened fire at an AutoZone store on Jackson Avenue while livestreaming the attack, police confirmed.

In a screen recording of the Facebook livestream shared widely on social media, Kelly can be seen getting out of a car and walking a few steps into the AutoZone store before pulling out a gun and firing it at a man inside the shop twice.

The man was hit and was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Before walking through the front door of the store, Kelly rants to the camera about “no faking, this s–t for real,” according to the livestream.

A citizen quickly alerted police about the video and soon after, the Memphis PD issued a public alert regarding Kelly and the vehicle he was reportedly driving.

Shortly after the alert went out, Kelly allegedly carjacked and shot a woman at Poplar Avenue and Evergreen Street in order to switch vehicles. He allegedly shot the woman around 7:23 p.m. and took off in her car, a gray Toyota SUV. That victim died at the scene, according to WREG.

A minute later, officers found another shooting victim at Poplar Avenue and McLean Boulevard. The male victim was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

At 8:55 p.m., police found a woman with gunshot wounds on West Raines Road. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kelly then crossed the state line and allegedly committed a second carjacking. He reportedly held a driver up at gunpoint and stole his Dodge Challenger at a gas station in Southaven, Mississippi — just below Memphis across the state line. The driver was uninjured.

Minutes later, police spotted the Dodge Challenger northbound on Interstate 55 and a high-speed chase followed that ended with Kelly crashing the car. He was taken into police custody without incident.

Police said they recovered two weapons from the car.

Kelly’s alleged shooting spree struck a nerve for many Memphis residents who were already reeling from a recent spate of violence and high-profile killings, including the abduction and murder of Tennessee school teacher Eliza Fletcher.

While Kelly was on the run, residents were ordered to stay inside if they didn’t need to be out, public bus service was suspended and two universities were placed on high alert as Kelly continued his violent rampage.

The University of Memphis sent a message to all students alerting them that a shooting had been reported near campus, and Rhodes College, about 4 miles away, advised students on and off campus to shelter in place.

Kelly was ultimately arrested in the Whitehaven neighborhood of Memphis, roughly 11 miles from the University of Memphis and about 12 miles from Rhodes College.

During a clip of his livestream, he can be seen driving while waving a handgun around.

Much of what he says is unintelligible, but a Facebook account that includes the photograph of the suspect shared by police shows several alarming posts about death.

The account has since been taken down.

In June 2020, Kelly was arrested on charges of attempted first-degree murder, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault, according to public records.

He was sentenced to three years, but was released this year on March 16 after serving just 11 months, Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland said.

The mayor slammed the courts for Kelly’s early release.

“If Mr. Kelly served his full three-year sentence, he would still be in prison today and four of our fellow citizens would still be alive,” Strickland said. It’s unclear why Kelly was released early.
