Murder suspect claims bad marijuana made him do it

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A man claims laced weed led him to pull the trigger on the person he believes gave him the bad marijuana.

Terrell Scott was charged and arrested for murder.

"I was watching tv, and I heard shots," said neighbor Buford Anderson.

According to the affidavit back in June, police found Robert Caston shot in the chest inside of a home on Shelter Cove.

"The next thing I know there were flashing light and then someone told me a guy had been shot," added Anderson.

On Tuesday, an arrest was issued for 29-year-old Terrell Scott.

The people who live in the home where Caston was found told WREG they didn't know him.

They said he was shot in the street and came to their home for help.

Buford Anderson has lived in the neighborhood for twenty years, and he said the thought of shots being fired right across the street, strikes entirely too close to home.

"It makes you uneasy, also lets you know it could happen anywhere. Here it happens in the street," said Anderson.

A witness statement revealed a possible motive for the murder.

It appears Scott believed the victim laced his marijuana, and so Scott retaliated.

Anderson said the issue had no business being brought into his neighborhood.

"If we stop taking our issue to other people's neighborhood we could live a bit safer," said Anderson.

Scott is scheduled to face a judge for the first time on Wednesday.
