MEMPHIS, Tenn. — U.S. Marshals said a man who was previously sentenced on a gun charge in the 2015 shooting death of an off-duty Memphis Police Officer has now been arrested and charged with second degree murder in the case.

Agents arrested Lorenzo Clark in the 3000 block of Emerald in Memphis Wednesday morning.

They said Clark is charged with second-degree murder in the death of off-duty Officer Terence Olridge.

Investigators said Clark and Olridge were neighbors when the two got into an argument in October 2015. Police said there was a shootout, and Olridge was killed.

In 2016, Lorenzo Clark was sentenced to just over 4 years in prison and two years supervised release for being a felon in possession of a handgun. His wife Natalie Clark was sentenced to a year in prison for giving her husband the gun.

At that time, investigators said there hadn’t been enough evidence to charged Lorenzo Clark with murder.

Bond is set at $500,000 for Lorenzo Clark.
