Fourth man arrested in fatal shooting of Memphis girl, 7

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Memphis police have charged a fourth man with murder in the drive-by shooting of a 7-year-old girl.

The Commercial Appeal ( reports 22-year-old Carlos Stokes was arrested Wednesday night in the death of Kirsten Williams, who was fatally shot April 10 as she played outside in her front yard.

According to court records, Stokes lived in the same home as a 15-year-old Cateria Stokes, who died in a drive-by shooting hours before the younger girl was slain.
