MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two people have been charged with second-degree murder after one person was killed in a shooting in Cordova on Saturday night.
Chauncy Black, 18, and Timothy Black, 20 were originally charged with tampering with or fabricating evidence and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon.
Those charges now include second-degree murder, according to the Shelby County Criminal Justice System Portal.
In 2016, we introduced you to Chauncy Black as a young man who offered to carry groceries in exchange for food at Kroger.
According to the Chauncy’s affidavit, he and his brother told police that a group of people drove to their house after an argument and one person in the car started shooting at their house.
Timothy and Chauncy told police they went inside, grabbed their weapons and fired back at the vehicle as it was driving away, the affidavit said.
According to Jaylin Edwards affidavit, Edwards was the person in the vehicle that fired at Chauncy and Timothy as well as three other people who were outside their house.
The five people outside of the house identified Jaylin Edwards as the one who fired shots at the house and said Tyrek Edwards also displayed a handgun.
When officers arrived at the scene they found Kaleb Wakefield, 26, of Cordova, shot.
Wakefield was taken to Regional One in critical condition and was later pronounced dead.
Jaylin and Tyrek Edwards were charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm.
Chauncy will appear in court Thursday morning.
