Killed – Man (Memphis, TN)


The man accused of being the partner in crime for a murder suspect will face a judge today.

Police say Christopher Woodland drove the getaway car after Charles Griffin shot and killed a pawn shop owner.

The shooting happened last week at Lamar Jewelry and Pawn in Memphis.

Surveillance video shows a man shattering a glass case, stuffing stolen jewelry into two red duffel bags and then getting away in a red car.

Griffin is expected in court sometime next week.

A man was shot dead inside an Orange Mound pawnshop Wednesday morning, according to the Memphis Police Department.
