SHELBY COUNTY, TN -

(WMC-TV) – Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich's office indicted three people in the shooting death of Methodist Le Bonheur nurse David Santucci Tuesday.

Two people, 19-year-old Dondre Johnson and 24-year-old Mario Patterson, were indicted on charges of murder in the perpetration of an attempted robbery. This murder charge carries a minimum sentence of life in prison if convicted and both are being held without bond.

The third person indicted, 23-year-old Jerrica Norfleet, was indicted on charges of accessory after the fact, to wit, first-degree murder. Her charges have a sentence of one to six years in prison and she is out on bond.

The shooting happened in August 2013 in the 200 block of South Main Street. Santucci was walking to his car after attending a party when Johnson and Patterson confronted him. They demanded money and then shot him. Norfleet told investigators that she was waiting in a car when the shooting happened.

The murder of Santucci sent shock waves through many in the community after he was killed. Many people were afraid and angry, including his friends, but they decided to turn fear on its face and started a pay it forward campaign called "Operation Tucci."
