HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAAY) - A man charged with rape at Alabama A&M University is a former Memphis police officer who resigned after shooting and killing a 15-year-old boy.
Terrance Shaw, 29, was arrested Sunday and charged with first-degree rape and sodomy of his ex-girlfriend. She was visiting the Alabama A & M grad student at his off-campus apartment.
Court records show a friend of the victim's reported the incident. The victim went to the crisis center, where she was examined.
According to court records, Shaw is accused of raping a woman Nov. 16. Court records also indicate three other men witnessed the act.
Our ABC affiliate in Memphis, Local 24, spoke with Shaw on the phone, who denies the charges. Shaw says it was consensual.
Shaw was off-duty when he shot and killed 15-year-old Justin Thompson during what he said was a robbery attempt in September 2012. Shelby County's district attorney declined to pursue charges after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation finished its investigation of the incident.
According to FOX 13 in Memphis, Shaw befriended Thompson after seeing him panhandling on the street. Shaw said the night he shot Thompson he had received a text message from the teen asking for food. Records show Shaw called police to report the shooting but never identified himself as a police officer. Shaw resigned from the department in April during an administrative review of his conduct.
Shaw is out of the Madison County Jail on a $20,000 bond. His next court hearing is Dec. 4.
