Feb. 1, 2018 – A 20-year-old man was indicted Thursday on premeditated first-degree murder charges in the shooting death of an acquaintance last year in North Memphis, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Marquise Fleming also was indicted on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon involving the injury of a second man who also was shot in the incident.
Investigators said victim Andrew Gleaton, 23, was standing outside a market in the 1500 block of Vollintine on May 1 last year when a car pulled up and a gunman, later identified as Fleming, began shooting Gleaton repeatedly.
Another man at the scene was shot in the foot.
The case is being handled by Asst. Dist. Atty. Kirby May with the DA’s Multi-Agency Gang Unit Prosecution Team which prosecutes homicide cases and other violent crimes, including aggravated robberies, kidnappings, rapes, criminal attempt murders and narcotics trafficking.
May also is Division Leader of the DA’s Old Allen Community Prosecution Unit which emphasizes crime prevention, prosecution and intervention in the Frayser-Raleigh-Millington area. All felony cases from the Old Allen Precinct area are handled before Criminal Court Judge John Campbell in Division 6.
