MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A woman was shot by a man on Westmont St. near Westwood Park.

Officers responded to a shooting at 7:45 p.m. and found a female that had been shot at the scene.

The woman was transported to Regional One Health Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Investigators found out that the shooting occurred because of an argument between the woman and the suspect, Joe Wilhite.

Wilhite left in a black Toyota Camry, and the vehicle was found later on by the police, but the suspect was not found.

Wilhite has a warrant out for his arrest for aggravated assault, a petition to revoke a suspended sentence, first-degree murder, and theft of property $2,500-$10,000.
