Police Discover 911 Call from Lorenzen Wright
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in a Memphis suburb are reviewing how a 911 call from Lorenzen Wright's cell phone was handled as authorities investigate the shooting death of the former NBA player.

Germantown's deputy police chief says department officials did not know about the call until Tuesday, eight days after it was received by a dispatcher in the early morning hours of July 19.

Wright was fatally shot and left in woods in southeast Memphis. His body was discovered Wednesday, six days after he was reported missing by family.
