A store clerk from Tennessee was found guilty of shooting and killing a Black teen in 2018, authorities said.
The Shelby County District Attorney’s office said in a press release on August 16 that Anwar Ghazali, 29, was convicted of second-degree murder after a four-day trial. On March 29, 2018, at the Top Stop Shop on 1127 Springdale Street in Memphis, Dorian Harris, 17, entered the convenience store and “took at least one beer … without paying.” Ghazali, with a handgun drawn, ran after Harris and shot at him several times.
Ghazali returned to the store; told a witness, “I think I shot him”; and did not call the police, according to the press release. A neighbor found Harris’ body at around 4 p.m. in a yard about a block away from the convenience store with a gunshot wound in the back of his left thigh.
