MEMPHIS, Tenn.- A grocery store clerk has been charged with first-degree assassination in the shooting of a teen who allegedly stole a beer.
The district attorney’s office in Shelby County, Tennessee, tells Anwar Ghazali is being held on a$ 1 million bond in the death of 17 -year-old Dorian Harris.
Investigators said Harris walked into Ghazali’s store in Memphis and left with a beer without paying on March 29. Police say Ghazali ran after him with a handgun and fired several shootings, then returned to the store and told a witness, “I suppose I shot him.” Ghazali didn’t bellow police.
Ghazali’s attorney Blake Ballin told The Commercial Appeal that the charge is unwarranted because the act was reckless , not premeditated.
