Member of Jerry Lee Lewis band killed in shootout
MEMPHIS (AP) - Musician B.B. Cunningham Jr., a member of Jerry Lee Lewis' band, was killed in a Memphis shootout early Sunday, police said.
Police said Cunningham was working as a security guard at an apartment complex on Memphis' southeast side, when the 70-year-old heard a gunshot at the neighbouring Cherry Crest apartments and went to investigate about 2 a.m., according to The Commercial Appeal newspaper.
Police didn't provide details, but they said when officers arrived, both Cunningham and a 16-year-old boy were found dead from gunshot wounds.
The teenager has not been identified. Calls to police by The Associated Press were not returned.
