41-year-old Myrone Myers Sanders was taken into custody for being a felon in possession of a handgun on March 20th. Officers were dispatched to Briley Parkway and the I-40 East exit ramp regarding a call saying that shots had been fired. Officers located an involved vehicle at Extended Stay America on Elm Hill Pike, matching a description given by another party. The caller stated that the car had 4-5 bullet holes in it. Detectives watched nearby security camera footage to determine where the vehicle occupants could have gone, leading them to their hotel room. The resident permitted officers to search the room, where they located Sanders and Cynthia McDonald, a witness.  Officers detained them, continued searching the room, and found a loaded Smith and Wesson Revolver with one spent shell casing under the stove. McDonald told officers that Sanders fired one shot from the revolver, and then they drove back to the hotel, where he had put the gun under the stove. Officers ran Sanders’ identification and were notified that he was a felon in Tennessee out of Shelby County. Sanders was then taken into custody and charged with felony weapon possession.
