Felony Offender Indicted in Fatal Shooting

Dec. 13, 2019 – A 31-year-old man has been indicted on first-degree murder and other charges in the shooting death and robbery of another man this summer at a service station in southeast Memphis, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Defendant Deangelo Thomas, 31, who is being held without bond, also was indicted on first-degree murder in the perpetration of a felony, especially aggravated robbery, and being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun.
Investigators said the shooting occurred shortly before 10 p.m. on July 13 this year when Thomas got into victim Daniel Perry’s vehicle on the service station lot in the 4200 block of Winchester Road near South Goodlett Road.
Thomas intended to buy marijuana from Perry, 28, but when a dispute arose Thomas shot him in the head and left.
The case is being handled by Asst. Dist. Atty. Jeff Jones of the District Attorney’s Special Prosecution Unit in Criminal Court Division 7 which seeks maximum sentencing for repeat felony offenders.
