MEMPHIS – Mar. 10, 2015 - A Shelby County Grand Jury has indicted a Memphis man for the first degree murder of his estranged wife's boyfriend, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said Tuesday.
Joel Tullison, 45, confronted David Allen Hoss, 28, outside of a store in southeast Memphis last October. The two had words and the man got into his car and left.
Tullison followed Hoss to the intersection of Riverdale and Fox Hedge where he pulled out a handgun and fired several rounds into the Hoss’ car, causing the car to crash into an oncoming truck.
Hoss later died from the gunshot wounds.
Tullison fled the scene and later turned himself in to the Memphis Police Department.
