During an early Thursday morning news conference, Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn “C.J.” Davis broke down a suspected timeline of the shootings.

The first shooting occurred around 12:56 a.m. and the responding officers found a dead male victim in a driveway at the scene.

At this time, Kelly was known by his Facebook alias, Zeek Huncho.

At 4:38 p.m., officers responded to another shooting where they found a man in his vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Video surveillance from this shooting allowed police to identify the car that Kelly was using in the shootings.

Moments later, at 4:40 p.m., officers responded to a shooting and found a woman with a gunshot wound to the leg. The suspect fled in a dark-colored sedan similar to the one used in the shooting less than four minutes before.

At 5:59 p.m., officers responded to a shooting at a nearby AutoZone. “Ezekiel Kelly was on Facebook Live when he opened fire inside the store,” Davis said.

A short time later, at 6:12 p.m., police received a call from a concerned citizen that someone with the name “Zeek Huncho” was live on Facebook, saying he was “threatening to cause harm to citizens,” Davis said.
