MEMPHIS, Tenn. — UPDATE: The court date was reset for July 5, 2022.
The former Kroger security guard who was charged with first degree murder last year for killing an unarmed man at a Kroger gas station in East Memphis is scheduled to appear in court Monday, May 2 at 9 a.m.
According to police, Gregory Livingston killed the victim August 7, 2021 after an argument about the victim’s loud car music. Livingston was not a licensed security guard, and he was not authorized to carry a firearm.
Livingston was originally charged with second degree murder, but his charges were increased to first degree murder after the state presented the Shelby County Grand jury with additional evidence and surveillance video from the gas station.
