An arrest has been made in a southeast Memphis double shooting where one person was killed.  Police have charged Joshua Potts and Marico Spencer with First Degree Murder and Employment of a Firearm.  On November 2nd, a car with three people inside was driving in the area of Barron and Meadow, when another vehicle carrying Potts and Spencer pulled up beside it.  Shots were fired.  Two people inside the first vehicle were hit.  Those victims were taken to the Med in critical condition.  The female victim, Shakita Blackmon, later died from her injuries.  Tuesday, Spencer turned himself in.  He told officers he was only the getaway driver and the shooting was over a rival gang dispute.  Both men are due in court today.
