Teen arrested in deadly shooting at Five Guys

EDITOR’S NOTE: A previous version of this story incorrectly associated Payne’s arrest with another murder case. We regret any confusion.

A 16-year-old charged last fall for the murder of another teen will now face charges as an adult.

Memphis Police confirm Dajimon Tarvaris Payne is charged with murder and other charges in the death of a 17-year-old gunned down as he took out the trash at an East Memphis restaurant in September.

Contario Sevion was working at the Five Guys in East Memphis when he was shot and killed Sept. 15, 2021.

Later that day, Memphis police said a 16-year-old was charged with first-degree murder, criminal attempted first-degree murder, and employment of a firearm during a dangerous felony. Today an MPD spokeswoman confirmed to FOX13 that Payne was that 16-year-old, and he is now being charged as an adult.

Zavion Payne, 19, was also charged in September with the facilitation of first-degree murder.
