MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Two men wanted for shooting at a crowded community center pool in north Memphis last month are now behind bars.
The incident occurred just after 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, at the Douglass Community Center. A 19-year-old male was shot in the ankle and taken to the hospital in non-critical condition.
Memphis police say the shooting started after two men bumped shoulders waiting in line to get into the pool area. Officers say one of the men demanded an apology. When that didn't come, the two got into a fight. That's when two men in a group of four pulled out guns and fired shots in the direction of the victim, near other other adults and children at the community center.
The victim identified 19-year-old Maurice Dorsey as the suspect who shot him in the ankle, and 24-year-old Larry Jackson as the other suspect who opened fire.
Both Dorsey and Jackson were arrested and charged with two counts Aggravated Assault and two counts Reckless Endangerment. They are currently being held without bond at the Shelby County Jail; both are scheduled to appear in court July 11.
