(Memphis)  Memphis Police and Shelby County deputies are investigating a pair of overnight shootings that left one man dead and sent another man to the hospital.

Around 10 p.m. Monday, deputies say 21-year-old Lapier Mitchell was shot and killed in the 4500 block of Harvest Valley — which is off Bolen Huse Road north of Raleigh.

So far, deputies haven’t released any information about any suspects.

The other shooting happened just before 1 a.m. Tuesday in the 1300 block of Kimball Cove in the Cherokee neighborhood.

Police say a 24-year-old man was shot and taken to the MED in critical condition.

Police have identified one suspect in this case — but haven’t released a description.

Anyone with information on either of these shootings should call CrimeStoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
