Arrest made in fatal shooting in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Memphis police have arrested a man accused of fatally shooting one man and wounding another.

The Commercial Appeal reports that 21-year-old Setric Hall has been charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault, attempted second-degree murder and using a firearm during a felony.

He's being held in the Shelby County Jail.

Police say the shootings occurred Wednesday night. Officers found a 26-year-old man on the floor with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead there, and later identified as Devin Cox.

A few minutes later, officers responded to another location, where they found a 22-year-old man with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis.

Police believe that Hall was trying to shoot his girlfriend when the 22-year-old man intervened.

The girlfriend was not injured.
