MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - A southeast Memphis credit union is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects who shot and killed a woman using the bank's ATM Tuesday night.
The same suspects are also believed to be responsible for shooting a man moments later in a nearby McDonald's parking lot during an attempted carjacking.
Officers were called to a shooting on the 3000-block of South Perkins near Knight Arnold around 7:20 p.m. on Tuesday, October 9. When they arrived on the scene, officers found a vehicle crashed into a utility pole. Investigators say the female driver had just left a nearby Orion Federal Credit Union ATM where two male suspects tried to rob her in her vehicle while she was getting cash. The suspects shot the woman, and she drove off and crashed. The victim, later identified as 44-year-old Roneccia Luster, was transported to The MED where she was pronounced dead.
The same suspects then tried to carjack a man in the same area, shooting the victim twice as he drove away. The man was transported to The MED in critical condition. Police have not released his identity.
Both suspects ran away before police arrived and remain at large. They are described as black males, with one last seen wearing a white hoodie. Surveillance cameras also captured partial images of the suspects.
In the backyard of a home not far from the crime scene, police found a gun possibly connected to the murder and shooting. The homeowner had no idea it was there until police came knocking on his door Wednesday morning.
Wednesday afternoon, CrimeStoppers of Memphis & Shelby County announced that Orion Federal Credit Union is offering an additional $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrests and convictions of the suspects responsible.
