The Latest: Man charged in shooting can't afford bond

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The latest on a Memphis police officer who was fatally shot (all times local):

10:30 a.m.

A man charged in connection with the fatal shooting of an off-duty Memphis police officer has told a judge that he can't pay the $100,000 bond set in his case.

Shelby County General Sessions Judge Gerald Skahan (SKAY'-han) informed 36-year-old Lorenzo Clark that he is charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Skahan says he is going to appoint a public defender.

Clark was arrested Sunday after police said he and neighbor Terence Olridge, an off-duty police officer, got into a shootout in a residential neighborhood in suburban Memphis.

Police say Olridge was shot multiple times and died at a hospital. Authorities are still investigating what caused the encounter between the men. Clark only faces the weapons charge.
