MEMPHIS, Tenn. — UPDATE: 12/2/2021 - A Shelby County jury convicted a Raleigh man Wednesday in the 2017 murder of an acquaintance.
The Shelby County District Attorney General’s Office said Darius Lamon Mack was convicted of first-degree murder and tampering with evidence in the death of 34-year-old Tyreece Fosset. The first-degree murder conviction carries an automatic sentence of life in prison. Mack will be sentenced for tampering with evidence in January.
Investigators said Fosset was shot to death outside a rooming house in the 3300 block of Keystone Avenue about 2:30 a.m. October 4, 2017. That's not far from Keystone Elementary. They said Fosset and Mack both had rooms at the home.
Investigators said video surveillance showed a man walk up to Fosset’s vehicle and fire into the car several times, hitting him in the head and neck. The shooter took off, but returned to the scene to retrieve shell casings.
Prosecutors said Mack was arrested two weeks later as he slept in his car outside a home on Quinn in South Memphis.
