This is just all-around awful and senseless.
On Tuesday, Memphis police announced that they had arrested a man and charged him with first-degree murder following a deadly double shooting that went down on Sunday.
While the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots were going at it on the field, Calvin Wilkins was dead set on doing something that would change his life and many others when he flew into a rage and it all stemmed from a plate of food during the Super Bowl.
According to the suspect’s wife, Wilkins became angry at her for making someone a plate of food during a Super Bowl party.
Wilkins became ‘verbally abusive’ and everyone but the victims left the party. His wife then received back-to-back calls from the victim’s phone. When she answered, she could hear Wilkins’ voice and one of victim’s pleading for their life.
She then heard multiple gunshots, the police report said.
Issacca Powell, who was a father of seven children that worked two jobs, was killed in the shooting. Sierra Stornes, a mother of three kids, was said to be shot multiple times in the head and was left with no brain activity. She’s currently on life support.
Wilkins has since admitted to being at the house Sunday night.
Inside his home, they found two handguns, marijuana, and clear plastic baggies, police said.
Wilkins is being charged with first-degree murder, criminal attempt first-degree murder, employment of a firearm during a dangerous felony, possession of a controlled substance and convicted felon in possession of a handgun.
