(AP) — A Tennessee man accused of killing four people and wounding three others in a livestreamed shooting rampage that paralyzed Memphis and led to a city-wide manhunt was granted a public defender during Friday morning court appearance and will remain jailed on a first-degree murder charge.

Nineteen-year-old Ezekiel Kelly told a judge he could not afford a lawyer on charge in Wednesday’s attack that caused panic and fear across the city. The hours-long rampage had police warning residents to shelter in place, locking down a baseball stadium and university campuses and suspending public bus services as frightened residents wondered where the man might strike next.

Kelly was arrested late Wednesday after crashing a stolen car while fleeing police.
