The Memphis Police Department confirmed that Kelly was arrested and taken into custody near Ivan Road and Hodge Road in Memphis, with the assistance of DeSoto County Sheriff’s Officers in Mississippi.

Kelly reportedly hijacked a Dodge Challenger by car in Southaven and crashed near Ivan Road and Hodge Road, catching himself inside the vehicle, the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office said.

According to the Memphis Police Department, residents in that area had been urged to seek shelter at the scene. This order has now been lifted.

Graphic video from around 4:30 p.m. local time on Wednesday showed what Kelly appeared to be as he allegedly shot random people while on Facebook Live.

In the video shared on social media, Kelly could be seen getting out of the car while continuing with an eloquent swear word, “This s*** is for real,” before entering an AutoZone and seemingly shot a man without warning.

According to MPDKelly had been spotted driving a gray Toyota SUV with an Arkansas license plate: AEV 63K.

Police said Kelly abducted a woman for her vehicle and witnesses said the woman was shot.

That woman, a 17-year-old, has since died, according to Fox 13.

“This has been a terrible week for the Memphis City Police Department,” police said.

“We offer our sincere condolences to all the victims affected by this series of violence.

The US Sun can confirm that as of 2020, Kelly faces charges including criminal attempted murder in the first degree, aggravated assault, use of a firearm with intent to commit a crime, and reckless endangerment.

Shelby County court documents show that he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and the other charges were dismissed.

On April 6, 2021, he was sentenced to three years in the Shelby County Department of Corrections after being tried as an adult.

He was ordered to pay $12,389.50 in fines and costs – and had agreed to a payment plan.

Kelly was sentenced to three years in prison but was released on March 16, 2022.

Authorities had reportedly issued an arrest warrant for Kelly as of Wednesday morning, stemming from an incident that took place on February 3, 2020.

Officials continue to investigate the possibility that Kelly could be responsible for multiple city-wide shootings.

A man was killed in a shooting in South Memphis off South Parkway East around 4:35 p.m. and another woman was injured just moments later on Norris Road off I-240, WREG reported.

Fox 13 reported that at 12:56 a.m. a 24-year-old man was killed on Lyndale Avenue.

The suspect has reportedly created an Instagram account where he appears to be documenting his crimes and wrote in his story: “I’m just getting started.

The Instagram was quickly removed and is now unavailable.

Residents in Memphis had been warned stay inside and away from the area while the police conducted investigations.

“If you don’t need to be outside, stay inside until the issue is resolved.”

The University of Memphis had been placed under lockdown after gunshots were fired near the campus, according to an alert sent to students and faculty.

“All the doors of the university have been locked for security reasons.”

The campus lockdown has since been lifted.

MATA trolley and bus services have been suspended indefinitely as police continue to search for Kelly.

“In lieu of the current threat announced by the Memphis Police Department regarding an active shooter in the Memphis area,” MATA said in a press release.

“MATA’s trolley and bus services will be suspended indefinitely. MATA executives are acting with great caution and concern for the safety of their drivers and passengers.”

A final run resumed for the evening after Kelly’s arrest.

The Delta Fair Festival has also been suspended, according to the Public Information Officer.

Fox 13, which has covered local coverage of the shooting, had said they were self-locked at their studio.
