Suspect Shot During Robbery Outside IHOP; Another Suspect In Custody & Third On The Run

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - A robbery suspect is in critical condition, another in police custody, and a third suspect is on the run after a robbery and shooting at an IHOP restaurant.

Shots were fired about 12:41 a.m. Wednesday in the 1200 block of East Shelby Drive in Whitehaven.

Police say three men tried to rob a man as he walked to his car. That man fired shots at the three suspects, injuring one of them. That suspect was taken to the hospital in critical condition. A second suspect was taken into custody. The third is on the run.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.

This is the same IHOP restaurant where a good Samaritan was shot and killed trying to break-up a domestic dispute in May 2017. Devin Wilson was reportedly trying to break up a fight between Charles Derrick Harris and his ex-girlfriend when police say Harris shot Wilson.

Harris was on the run for months, before being captured in Chicago in November. He faces a first-degree murder charge.
