Memphis Police have charged a man with a string of carjackings after a woman’s car was stolen at gunpoint from an apartment complex.
According to police, a woman was forced from her car at gunpoint on July 9 around 5:30 a.m. at the Champaign Place Apartments.

That case was just one in a string of carjackings, according to police.
While investigating that carjacking, police said they received several Crime Stopper tips that led them to 22-year-old James Williams.
