MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - A teen suspect shot by a home invasion victim went straight from the hospital to jail for the crime.
Memphis police responded to reports of shots fired near South Goodlett Street and Windy Hollow Circle just after 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 12. When officers arrived, they found an 18-year-old male with multiple gunshot wounds. An ambulance transported him to The MED in critical condition.
While still on the scene of the shooting call, additional officers responded to a home invasion just a short distance from where the teen was found. Investigators stated that two male suspects knocked on the door of the apartment asking for someone inside; the suspects then forced everyone inside down to the floor and made them empty their pockets.
One of the victims was armed and shot at one of the suspects, later determined to be 18-year-old Deunte Scurlark, the same suspect responsible for the home invasion. The second suspect remains at large.
Scurlark was arrested upon his release from the hospital and charged with Criminal Attempt Felony to wit Aggravated Robbery. He is being held at the Shelby County Jail on $100,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court May 21.
