MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man is dead following an altercation over a shower in the Parkway Village neighborhood.
The incident occured on June 10 when a man contacted Memphis Police after his roommate, Alexander Gibbs, had been shot in the upstairs bedroom at an apartment on the 4800 block of Chesterwood Court.
The man said that Gibbs had gotten into an argument with Tyquavious Earvin, his cousin, about going into Earvin’s room to use the shower. Police said the two proceeded to argue outside. Then, Gibbs went back inside followed by Earvin.
The man told police he heard Earvin yelling from upstairs, followed by “Yeah, yeah” and a gunshot. Police said Earvin ran downstairs and started pacing outside before running away.
