THE suspect who allegedly shot and killed a woman outside an Amazon warehouse on Friday has been named by authorities.
Corey Brewer was shot and killed by police following a traffic stop after authorities said he killed 44-year-old Ebony Crockett in Memphis, Tennessee.
Employees told ABC 24 that Crockett was in the parking lot when she was shot multiple times.
The DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office said the woman was shot three times and was pronounced dead on the scene.
“I came outside on my lunch break and literally heard shooting gunshots and I didn’t really see anything per day but I mean there were quite a few gunshots that went off," an employee at the warehouse told News 3.
The victim's identity and age were not immediately released.
