Memphis police search for suspects ‘fixin’ to shoot a white old lady with grandkids in the car’… for starters

The Memphis Police Department is searching for the identities of two men caught on video making terrorist threats against white people as they drive down the road, one day after a violent massacre rocked the Tennessee community and on the heels of the abduction and murder of a beloved school teacher.

The passenger can be heard referencing the killing of Eliza Fletcher, the 34-year-old teacher abducted and killed while jogging in Memphis last week, before the driver brags about crimes they’ve already committed.

“He already shot a white hoe,” the driver in the video said. “Man, I’m fixin’ to shoot a white old lady, sh-t…while her grandkids are in the car.”

In the video where the two men mock “white lives matter,” they name 19-year-old Ezekiel (Zeek) Kelly, accused of killing four and wounding another three in Memphis on Wednesday during the commission of a crime spree he allegedly live-streamed on Facebook.

“Imma go Zeek-mo on some white people,” the driver said, referring to Kelly. “Gonna get any white hoe if we don’t get popped tonight.”


During a press conference Wednesday, Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland said Kelly has a long criminal history. He was charged with attempted first-degree murder in April 2021 but pleaded guilty to a downgraded aggravated assault charge, for which he served only 11 months of his three-year sentence.

“If Mr. Kelly served his full three-year sentence, he would still be in prison today and four of our fellow citizens would still be alive,” Strickland said.

The two men sought for questioning in relation to the vulgar social media diatribe may have been emboldened by the recent spate of black-on-white violence.

Cleotha Henderson, 38, faces multiple charges in the killing of Fletcher. Henderson allegedly passed by Fletcher in an SUV while she was jogging in a neighborhood near the University of Memphis. Authorities say Henderson got out of the vehicle and chased Fletcher until he forced her into the passenger seat around 4 a.m. Friday, September 2. Fletcher’s body was found Monday behind a vacant duplex.

“White folks be hating’ black people,” the driver said. “I hope you know dat. I’m a take you all back to racism, see ya’ll later.

Twitter responses were mixed but some were impressed with the hate-filled vitriol.

“I love this guy!!!!” the Young Thugger Pen Pal account wrote. “Don’t hate on him he sayin what he feels.”

Some asked where the outrage was in response to the blatant racism.

“Hey-what the prez of unity and inclusion had to say about this” wrote the Smarti030 account, tagging President Joe Biden.

MPD describes the suspects as two black males between the ages of 18-21 and have only social media posts to go on.

“On Thursday, September 8, 2022, the Memphis Police Department was advised of threats of violence directed at members of our community,” MPD wrote in a Facebook post. “These terroristic threats were posted on social media platforms and specific threats to events occurring in the City of Memphis.”
