Two of the victims were reportedly teenage Kroger employees coming to the aid of a customer being attacked by the group. A video of the incident has gone viral.
The group of culprits came from the direction of a nearby CiCi’s Pizza. They shouted the words “Fam Mob,” which is a Memphis-based gang, as they approached the grocery store.
According to law enforcement, several people in the group attacked a 25-year-old man as he was exiting his vehicle. He suffered numerous blows to the face before fleeing inside the grocery store.
Two male Kroger employees, ages 17 and 18, attempted to help the man as the gang swarmed him, but were reportedly punched, kicked, and hit with pumpkins until they lost consciousness near the store’s front entrance.
Anyone with information on the occurrence is encouraged to contact the Tillman Police Station at 901-636-3214 or Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
