Man Indicted in Airport Hotel Shootings

Aug. 4, 2019 – An early-morning shooting at a Whitehaven motel last year has resulted in the first-degree murder indictment of a 28-year-old Memphis man, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
A grand jury also indicted defendant Ike Williams on two counts of attempted first-degree murder for wounding two women, two counts of employment of a firearm with intent to commit a dangerous felony, and unlawful possession of a weapon.
Williams is being held without bond.
The shootings occurred around 4:45 a.m. on Sept. 19, 2018, at the Airport Inn in the 1400 block of East Brooks Road.
Witnesses said Williams shot and killed Terrell Stevenson, 35, after chasing him into a third-floor room, and then also shot two women in their legs.
The case is being handled by Chief Prosecutor Stephanie Johnson of the DA’s Vertical Team 2 which handles cases from General Sessions 9 and Criminal Court Division 2.
