    Lamorris was murdered

    Shooting at Mt. Moriah business leaves suspected thief dead

    POSTED 1:58 PM, OCTOBER 16, 2019, BY WREG STAFF AND LUKE JONES, UPDATED AT 10:18PM, OCTOBER 16, 2019








    UPDATE: Charles Kalb has been charged with murder in the shooting death of of Lamorris Robinson as the suspected thief was fleeing. Kalb was an employee at a business next door.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. A man is dead after a shooting in front of a Fox Meadows business Wednesday, police said, and he was allegedly up to no good.

    Memphis Police were at Extra Space Storage at 2625 Mt. Moriah just before 2 p.m. Police said one man was shot in front of the business and was taken to Regional One Hospital in critical condition.

    The man was pronounced dead later at Regional One.

    I thought maybe it was an accident until I seen the crime scene tape, a patron at the facility said.


    Police say an employee at a business next door shot the man after he allegedly took a chainsaw from the business. The shooting did not involve the storage facility.

    People trying to access their storage spaces were turned away by police as the scene was blocked off with crime scene tape much of Wednesday evening.

    One man was detained on the scene at Mt. Moriah. Its not clear if the shooter will face any charges.

    This is an ongoing investigation.



    The lesson here is dont shoot anyone , no matter how deserving, in the back.

    Seems to me the lesson is: Shoot him in the back & then shoot him in the front. Tell the police you shot twice & the first shot spun him around. Oh & destroy the tape.

    The lesson here is one, it's not legal in any jurisdiction to shoot someone to protect property. Not even the police can do that. Two, it's barely legal to protect one's life to say nothing of trying to protect property now that insurance has been invented. Three, that why we have third party insurance to pay for property theft so that we don't have to shoot someone.

    I need more details on this one. If a thug steals my chainsaw, and I can hear/see the chainsaw crank up and blow smoke, I'm all the sudden in fear of my life. I think there was a movie or two about guys with chainsaws, and they weren't pretty.

    Now, if Lamorris (who names their kid Lamorris??) was just borrowin' the saw because he left the key to his storage locker at home, well, that's a different matter altogether.

    Texas Penal Code


    Sec. 9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:

    (1) if he would be justified in using force against the other under Section 9.41; and

    (2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:

    (A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or

    (B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from escaping with the property; and

    (3) he reasonably believes that:

    (A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or

    (B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.

    Thanks for clearing that up. Apparently, one state out of fifty. Don't kill anybody in Montana for taking your property.

    Montana probably has something similar. Seems to be a regional thing. I don't know for sure though.
