Jack Hammer, Crime Reporter – Another Manhunt ends in perfect fashion, and justice is served. Don’t tell me we have a “gun problem”; American has a “felon in possession of a firearm” crisis.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. —The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has identified the deceased person following a deputy-involved shooting early Wednesday morning. The suspect was identified by a TBI spokesperson as Keyshon Parham [mugshot below], who was wanted on multiple felony warrants. One of those was issued just last week by the Memphis Police Department following a car-to-car triple shooting on I-40 on October 9.
Early Wednesday morning law enforcement officers were executing an arrest warrant when Parham fled through another exit. A chase ensued. At some point, two law enforcement officers fired their weapons and Parham was shot and killed. A deputy who did not fire his weapon was also shot in the leg and rushed to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
WREG news 3 discovered Parham has been arrested multiple times for various driving offenses, theft and assault. Back in March Memphis Police released surveillance video taken at a southeast Memphis gas station of a black male stealing a car. Records show officers connected Parham to the crime after receiving a tip and when they showed up to his listed address they found the car’s key in his pocket.
