Memphis Man Arrested Outside Yo Gotti Show After Threatening To Kill Patrons


On Friday night (July 15), Yo Gotti was hosting his annual birthday bash at Memphis’ FedExForum, though while he was inside celebrating, an angry man was outside, allegedly threatening to kill patrons leaving the event early this morning.

A Facebook post from the city’s police department reveals that around 2:48 AM, “officers responded to an armed mental consumer call in the 200 Black of South Main Street,” where they found their suspect, 28-year-old Elijah Hyman with his girlfriend.

“Hyman appeared distraught due to a breakup between him and his girlfriend,” the report continues. “Officers were advised that since Hyman and his girlfriend’s relationship was coming to an end, he wanted to kill himself and everyone he saw coming from an event being held at [the Forum].”

The suspect had a bloody cut on his right hand, said to be from a glass window inside of his apartment, which officers were also advised was home to several weapons.

“Hyman was detained, placed in cuffs, and taken for medical treatment and evaluation. A search warrant was conducted on the apartment where Hyman resides and several weapons were confiscated. The ATF was contacted.”

It’s been noted that the suspect was charged with Commission of the Act of Terrorism – no further details have been made available at this time.
