MEMPHIS, Tenn. (TCD) — A 26-year-old woman is in custody on suspicion of fatally shooting a man and then stealing money from him before purchasing food.

On Monday, May 6, at approximately 7:46 a.m., officers with the Memphis Police Department responded to Filmore Avenue, where they found a male gunshot victim, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said they obtained footage from the area revealing a person of interest in the man’s shooting death.

According to WREG-TV, the next day, a woman reported her daughter, Kenyetta Hayes, as the suspect and escorted her to police. Officials arrested Hayes on charges of first-degree murder and perpetration of a robbery.

Hayes told officers a man allegedly offered to pay her $60 for oral sex at a Marathon gas station. Hayes reportedly went with the man to a park under the false pretenses that she was going to engage in the sexual act, but she planned to rob him instead.

At the park, Hayes allegedly fatally shot the man, took cash from him, and then fled the scene before spending $47 on two hot wing combos for herself and her boyfriend. WREG reports Hayes told police she was “thirsty for money.”

Hayes remains held in the Shelby County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court on May 9.

  1. It’s truly a shocking story! Kenyetta Hayes’s actions are tragic and despicable. No one deserves to be harmed in such a violent manner. Let’s hope justice is served for the victim and his family.

  2. It’s shocking to read about this case. It’s disheartening to see such a tragic event unfold. People need to remember that violence is never the solution to any problem. My thoughts are with the victim’s family during this difficult time.
