Ten-year-old Richard Jordan was in a car with family members and friends on that Monday afternoon when their vehicle came to a stop at a light on Airways Boulevard at Ketchum Road in Frayser. Three cars came alongside and multiple shots were fired.
The other cars — described as a gold Chevrolet Malibu with missing hubcaps, a black Chrysler 300 and a gray sedan — fled east on Ketchum.
Jordan, a 12-year-old and one adult were driven to the MPD Airways station, then transported to the hospital by paramedics. All three had gunshot injuries. Young Jordan died at the hospital.
