Ronald Jones, 22, is being held on $500,000 bond in the death of Vicdarrius Pollard, 18, who was shot multiple times July 24 at the LA Fitness on Polo Grounds Boulevard.
Witnesses said Jones and Pollard, who did not know each other, were playing basketball and got into an argument over a foul, according to the Shelby County District Attorney. Jones walked out of the gym, returned and allegedly began shooting. Pollard died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Jones was taken into custody on July 28 and charged in General Sessions Court with first degree murder. Those charges were backed by a police affidavit. A grand jury heard evidence in the case and moved to file the indictment, which means the case will start fresh and track toward a trial, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
