MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – Memphis police are looking for two people suspected of being responsible for a quadruple shooting in South Memphis Saturday night.
Police say the shooting call came in just after 9:30 p.m. Saturday, and when officers arrived, investigators found three Hispanic victims suffering from gunshot wounds.
They were taken to Regional One Hospital in an ambulance. A short time later, a fourth victim with gunshot wounds arrived in a private vehicle.
Investigators say the suspects, described as two black men, drove away from the intersection of Goodlett Road and Sheffield Avenue in a black Dodge Charger.
Locals say the shooting is one of many that have terrorized their own neighborhood.
“This neighborhood is a little crazy; I mean, I wish there weren’t so many shootings,” said one resident who wished to remain anonymous.
According to another resident, this latest shooting is not surprising. They say this is just one of many shootings in the area.
“The shots are so close that when I hear them, I kick under my carport because you never know if they’re shooting in the air or shooting someone,” Nigel Thompson said.
Residents living in the neighborhood say they hope the violence ends, but after a dangerous night, they’re taking extra steps to stay safe.
“I just stay to myself, ‘be careful,’ and keep my part to myself,” Thompson said.
Investigators have not yet released what led to the shooting.
Three of the injured have been discharged from hospital. One remains hospitalized as of Sunday night.
No arrests have been made so far and no weapons have been recovered.
