A suspect was charged Monday morning in connection with the shooting death of an off-duty Memphis cop a day earlier.
Lorenzo Clark, 36, was charged with felony possession of a firearm in connection with officer Terrence Olridge’s death. The men are neighbors in Cordova, a major retail center just east of Memphis.
Karen Lax also lives in the neighborhood and told WMC she witnessed the suspect during a previous hostile encounter with a different neighbor.
“I’m not really surprised something bad happened,” she said.
Police said Olridge was on his way to work Sunday at about 1 p.m. when he had an encounter with Clark outside his house. The men exchanged gunfire, and Olridge was struck. The nature of the encounter was not immediately clear.
After the shooting, Olridge went back to his house and tried to get help. He was taken to a hospital, where he died. Police say Clark surrendered peacefully after the shooting.
