May 8, 2019 – A Hickory Ridge man has been indicted on second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of a friend during an argument in the Hedgerow Apartments at East Shelby Drive and Riverdale Road, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Defendant Brandon Aldridge, 35, also was indicted on theft over $1,000 for driving away in his cousin’s vehicle. He is being held on $200,000 bond.
On Feb. 3 of this year police were called to the apartment complex where they found 41-year-old Enrique Tharrington lying in the parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition where he later died.
Aldridge was arrested and charged five days later.
