An off-duty officer from Memphis died Sunday after receiving multiple gunshot wounds while outside his suburban home, making it the fourth police shooting in the city in a little over four years, according to police.
Terence Olridge, 31, was on his way to work Sunday when a man, whose identity has not been released, came up to him and shot him, Olridge's uncle, Jerry Kelly, told FOX's Memphis affiliate FOX 13. Kelly also noted that Olridge's pregnant fiance was inside at the time of the shooting.
"We just got a call, told us he'd been shot on his way to work, that he made his way back to the door some kind of way," he said. "I don't know exactly how he made it back, but made it back to the garage door."
At 1 p.m., police got a call about the shooting and took a suspect into custody, said Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong, according to ABC News. He failed to mention if the suspect has been charged.
Olridge was later taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries.
Armstrong said the investigation is ongoing and hinted at some difficulty the police might encounter while sorting out the case saying, "details are sketchy," according to Associated Press.
This is the fourth police shooting to occur in Memphis since 2011 - a fact Armstrong, who had addressed the media following the previous shootings, was painfully aware of.
"I didn't think that we'd be here again so soon," he said.
