Man Charged in Friend’s Shooting Death

Nov. 13, 2018 – A 20-year-old man has been indicted on reckless homicide charges for allegedly shooting his teenage friend in the back of the head while firing at someone else from the back seat of a car, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Investigators said the victim, Dekario Linwood, 17, was leaning out of the front-seat passenger side window when defendant Felix Dewberry began shooting at someone outside of their car. He said his intended target was shooting at him and the others in the car.
The incident occurred shortly before 9 p.m. on Nov. 8, 2017, near Saffarans and Pearce in North Memphis. Linwood was dropped off at Regional One Health where he died two days later.
Dewberry is free on $100,000 bond.
