MEMPHIS, Tennessee – District Attorney Steve Mulroy will hold a press conference to discuss a teenager charged with murder who is reportedly on the run.

The press conference will focus on developments in the case of missing teenager Damarion Tackett. He has reportedly been missing for a week.

Last week, Tacket was released from jail on $100,000 bail after failing to appear at a later court hearing in connection with the shooting of local “Watermelon Man” John Materna.

The 16-year-old was charged with aggravated robbery, car theft and illegal possession of weapons.

Tackett is also charged with first-degree murder, but that case has not yet been brought before a grand jury because some records are incomplete.

WREG will be at the press conference. We will update this story as updates become available.
