The man, Derric Fifer, told the reporter for the Memphis FOX owned station he didn’t commit the crime. “It’s a mistake they have my name,” Fifer told Thomas. “Somebody gonna get sued because I ain’t do nothing,” he added later.
In a follow up later in the day, Thomas told viewers police converged on the live shot but not before Fifer got away. Police later told Thomas Fifer was no longer a suspect. See that video after the jump.
