Duo charged after opening fire on apartment building

28-year-old Floyd Franklin and 27-year-old Quanpatrick Rockamore were charged with two counts of assault after reportedly chasing someone and shooting up an apartment building.

On December 7th, Memphis Police officers responded to a shooting at 5175 Wayfarer Circle. Upon arrival, they met with Frankie Baker, who told them a bullet came through her window. She told police that she and her daughter, Commalita Tate, were in the apartment when she heard 5 shots and she got on the floor. An unnamed victim called 911 and advised them two black males in a black Nissan Altima fired the shots at them.

Officers arrived at the scene and approached a car that matched the description. Inside was Quanpatrick Rockamore in the driver’s seat, Floyd Franklin in the passenger’s seat, and Brandon Braswell standing next to the vehicle. An anonymous victim told the officers that Floyd and Brandon chased and fired shots at him after exiting the car.

A search of the vehicle produced a Micro Draco firearm from under the passenger seat and a Smith & Wesson .40 caliber in the rear center seat. Investigators received surveillance footage of the incident from the leasing office that corroborated the victims’ stories.

A criminal history check was run on Floyd and Brandon. Floyd was shown to have pled guilty to aggravated burglary in 2014 and was sentenced to three years. Brandon was shown to have pled guilty to aggravated robbery in 2010 and was sentenced to nine years.

Floyd Franklin was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm as a convicted felon and two counts of aggravated assault. He was released on a $7,500 bond.
