An active shooter named Ezekiel Kelly AKA “Zeek Huncho” randomly shot people in multiple locations throughout the city of Memphis, including at an AutoZone store, while streaming his actions on Facebook Live video, police said in a series of urgent alerts.
Kelly has a criminal history. You can read more about that here.
Allison Parker, a young mother and medical assistant, was named as one of the deceased victims.
In an evening news conference, the Memphis police chief, C.J. Davis,
gave a detailed timeline, revealing that four people were shot to death, another three were shot, and an eighth victim was carjacked but uninjured. The two shot men were found in a driveway and vehicle. The man shot in the AutoZone is in critical condition. Davis confirmed the suspect was live streaming during that shooting through the page “Zeke Huncho.” Authorities are investigating whether there are other shooting scenes as well. The deceased victims are two men and two women. They have not been named.
You can watch some of the Facebook Live video later in this article, but be forewarned that it’s very disturbing and extremely violent and graphic. One video clip captures the random shooting in the AutoZone. The URL of the Facebook page reads, “bankboy Zeek.” It has now been deleted, but Heavy saved numerous posts and photos from it, which you can read later in the story. The active shooter scare broke out on the evening of September 7, 2022. The chief thanked people who saw the “aggression” Kelly exhibited on Facebook and alerted police.
A photo shared by Memphis police of the suspect came from the Facebook page of “Zeek Huncho.”
According to Fox 13 Memphis, three people were shot in the city throughout the day; a man was shot and killed at a BP gas station at 4:35 p.m., another man, 24, was killed on Lyndale Avenue at 12:56 p.m., and a woman was shot on Norris Road, suffering critical injuries.
One video clip, which you can watch below, shows the active shooter walking into the store and randomly shooting a man within seconds of walking inside. The man is simply standing in the aisle of the store and doing absolutely nothing wrong.
“No fakin’, no fakin’. This s*** for real…” the active shooter said nonchalantly as he walked in the store. The Zeek Huncho Facebook page is full of photos of a man with guns and wads of cash.

Police Urgently Warned People to ‘Be on the Lookout’ for the Gunman, Saying He Is ‘Responsible for Multiple Shootings,’ as the Suspect Streamed on Facebook Live
Videos of the suspect on Facebook Live were widely shared on social media. In one video, he said, “This sh** too easy.” The AutoZone shooting video can be viewed above by clicking on the play button, but it’s very graphic.
In a second video clip, the suspect drives past a gas station and appears to shoot. The language in this video is also extremely graphic. “This s*** for real n*****,” he said.
Memphis police wrote at about 7 p.m. central time, “ALERT!! ARMED AND DANGEROUS!!!! Be on the lookout for a male Black occupying a blue or silver sedan (possibly an Infiniti or Nissan) who is responsible for multiple shootings. We are getting reports that he is recording his actions on Facebook. We do not have a specific location of where he is now. If you have any information of his whereabouts call 911 immediately.”
Police then wrote that the gunman had changed cars, “UPDATE: suspect is now believed to be in a grey Toyota SUV.”
Memphis police shared a photo from the Zeek Huncho Facebook page and wrote, “The suspect is a 19-year-old male Black driving a light blue Infiniti.”
The active shooter scare comes as Memphis is reeling from the abduction and murder of jogger Eliza Fletcher.
Numerous Photos on the Zeek Huncho Facebook Page Show the Suspect With Guns & Wads of Cash; He Refers to Himself as a ‘Natural Born Hustla’
The cover photo on the Zeek Huncho page shows a man with what appears to be a firearm. That post reads, “FREE MY KILLER KARMA BEEN BAD SINCE YOU BEEN GONE 💚 Luh Ty.” You can see it here:
The page reads, “longlive kinglonglive ricolonglive terio ,8-8-22 #SVMCEOZEEK #NHC,” and says its user lives in Memphis and is from Spring Valley, Tennessee.
In July, he wrote, “If I Lose It All Today I’ll Get It Back Tomorrow 💥Ima Natural Born Hustla Been This Way Since A Toddler💰 #fifthball”
Another July post refers to a shootout:
“I can’t lie again, I can’t tell on my friend
They asked and you told what you knew ’bout ✅
I charged my F&N, hope it blow again
I’m the first one to shoot in a shootout 💚”
He wrote in June, “I just don’t understand this ‘I pray to the judge’ but you was my charge partner and you describe to the judge im the driver and my nick and government name people are delusional 🤷🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️”
The top visible post on the Zeek Huncho Facebook page is from August 18, and it reads, “I’m sorry momma I know you hate how I live fuc it this just what it is I got you 4 life I know you pray every night I swear wont GO witout a fight I promise I want go out like his kinfolk #JustUs.”
