23-year old Johari Jenkins is in jail after shooting into a woman’s home with children inside.
According to FOX 13 Johari Jenkins is charged with multiple counts of criminal attempt first-degree murder, aggravated assault and more after an incident on Thursday, May 2.
On May 2, the Memphis Police Department (MPD) was called to the 1100 block of Breedlove around 5:30 p.m. after a woman reported that her three children were inside of their home when a woman allegedly fired shots into the home, records show.
According to an affidavit, the children said the suspect, later identified as Jenkins, shot once into the floor and said “I hope I hit one of them little b******.”
Jenkins walked to the breezeway on the second floor and allegedly intentionally fired four to five times into the living room window.
When investigators made the scene, they spoke to the children and the children gave a statement detailing the facts of the shooting and identified Jenkins in a six-person photo lineup as the person responsible for the shooting, the affidavit said.
The next day, just after 10 a.m., investigators spoke with a witness who said she was at a nearby apartment when she heard several shots.
According to reports, the witness said she heard Jenkins state, “since I already got a charge on me, I might as well get another one today by killing you and your kids b****.”
The investigators spoke with the witness and she gave a statement plus identified Jenkins in a six-person lineup.
Later in the day, just after 12:30 p.m., another witness said she was inside her home the same night of the shooting and said Jenkins had a firearm in her possession and was shooting inside the second floor of her neighbor’s home.
