MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) -- A Memphis man was charged with seven counts of attempted murder after allegedly shooting at a house twice within a week.

According to police, on May 4, Byron Walker drove by a home in the 5600 block of Myers, leaned out the window and began shooting. Five people were inside the house at the time.

On May 10, police responded to the same house after the 19-year-old reportedly returned and shot at two people standing outside. No one was hurt in either shooting.

Authorities told WREG’s Melissa Moon they believe the shootings are connected to the recent shooting death of a rival gang member, and said Walker is a person of interest in that case.

Walker has been arrested four times since October but two of the cases were dismissed.
