On 7 September 2022, a gunman went on a shooting spree for several hours in the U.S. city of Memphis, Tennessee. The assailant drove a vehicle across the city while shooting people at random at seven different sites as he livestreamed his actions on social media. He also hijacked a vehicle during the evening hours after abandoning his own. The attacker killed four people and wounded three others. Police officers launched a pursuit and advised residents in the city to shelter in place. The Memphis Area Transit Authority temporarily suspended bus and trolley services during the police pursuit. Authorities arrested the gunman in the southern Whitehaven neighborhood shortly after 2100 local time (0200 UTC on 8 September). While the motive for the shooting rampage is currently under investigation, the detainee has an extensive criminal history and was released from prison earlier this year.
