Memphis Fire Department personnel had seen it before: a private automobile pulling into the wide firehouse driveway and coming to a quick stop, its occupants spilling out and shouting that they had a gunshot victim inside.
Firefighters on duty ran to help. It was about 4:30 p.m. on a Wednesday, October 7, 2020 at the station on South Third Street.
Nearby, Memphis Police officers coming from the Crump Precinct had arrived at a crime scene in the 200 block of Adolphus, where onlookers said a man in a red sedan with a white hood had fired multiple gunshots at a group of people standing and talking in front of a house. The car sped away.
Bullets struck a woman identified as Keshundra Fleming, a some-time resident in Memphis and in Arkansas. Fleming was placed into a car for the short drive to the firehouse for help, but there she died of her injuries.
The killing is now a cold case, waiting for information such as someone coming forward with more details on the shooter’s car, or even a name heard later about the crime. Cold Case Bureau investigators say any further detail about the woman’s murder could help solve the case.
The Fleming cold case is one of dozens spotlighted here.
