Four charged, victim identified in deadly Cordova shooting
Updated at 06:28PM, January 6, 2020



SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. — A man was shot and killed over the weekend in Cordova after a shootout, and four men have been charged in connection to his death.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office said deputies were on the scene of the shooting in the 6900 block of Lagrange Circle South around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

A police affidavit says a car pulled up to the Black family’s home, and someone started shooting.

When Chauncy and Timothy Black returned fire, bullets struck the house across the street.

One person, later identified by authorities as 26-year-old Kaleb Wakefield, was shot in that house and taken to Regional One Hospital in critical condition. Around 10 p.m., the sheriff's office said he died from injuries at the hospital.

Chauncy, 18, and Timothy, 20, were charged Sunday. Jail information lists the charges for both men as reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and tampering with evidence.

To some in the Mid-South, Chauncy might look familiar.

He made headlines in 2016 after asking a stranger to buy him donuts in a grocery store parking lot. A GoFundMe raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for his family. Less than four years later, he looks like a far cry from that smiling, grateful boy.

Jaylin and Tyrek Edwards are brothers who are also charged in connection with this case. They face aggravated assault and other charges.

Fundraiser for teen’s family now tops $300,000 and keeps family on the move




MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Home is now wherever 15-year-old Chauncy Black and Matt White can find it.

"Right now I just have to keep them on the move because everybody recognizes me and Chauncy wherever we go," White said.

We caught up with them and Chauncy's grandmother and brother after they spent the night with friends who opened their home in East Memphis.

"We are just living off the graces of other people right now for food and for places to stay," White said.

It's what they have had to resort to since the GoFundMe account White set up exploded, bringing in more than $300,000.

"We appreciate it. That was good blessing that God sent to us and sent Matt to us," Chauncy said.

It all started from a chance encounter at a Kroger store. Chauncy offered to help White with groceries if he would buy him doughnuts.

White bought him a basket of groceries, took him home and saw a home in need.

"They had nothing. No furniture. Blankets on the floor, nothing in the refrigerator," White said.

He set up an internet account to raise a few hundred dollars, never expecting more than $300,000.

"They just took it and ran with it and the whole world exploded," White said.

With the money came demands.

"My relatives were like when you get some money can you help me, asking for help in business and all that kind of stuff," says Barbara Black, Chauncy's grandmother.

She said when they were struggling, the family members now asking them for money wouldn't even help them.

"They never came around. Never offered me nothing. Nothing," Barbara Black said.

White said they are contacting an attorney about handling the money.

"So that they take the least amount of hit on taxes. So it's set up in a trust and not at risk of anybody trying to come and claim it," White said.

White said the next step is to find a place to stay for the next month then handle the legal matters, including investments and finding Chauncy's family a permanent house.
