Man charged with shooting up same house twice in gang retaliation, police say

Memphis, Tenn. — Police arrested a man on three counts of first-degree attempted murder and 19 counts of aggravated assault after he allegedly shot up a house on two different occasions and drove the get-away car in another shooting in Whitehaven.

Kayvus Jones, 22, pulled up into the driveway of a home on Kimball Avenue near Cherokee Elementry School and opened fire into the house with 2 children inside, according to a police affidavit. Police said

Two days later, police said, Jones drove a car involved with between 80 and 100 shots being fired at 9 adults and 4 children at a home on Michael Cove, hitting one man in the back.

According to police, Jones then returned to the home Kimball Ave. just three days after that and shot 6-10 more times as a woman was leaving the house, leaving bullet holes in her car in the process.

Police said that, just over a week after the second shooting at the house on Kimball Ave., Jones admitted to shooting up the home and driving the get-away car at the shooting on Michael Cove and said that all the incidents were gang retaliation by a group known as the “400 Blocc” gang.
