(Memphis) People on Farrington Street in South Memphis are hoping the violence will stop after two shootings at one home Monday.

The first shooting happened just after 12:30 Monday night, when a man was held at gunpoint and then shot by three masked men.

Then at 8:30 that night, police say two cars drove by and the passengers began shooting. One man was hit in the chest and was taken to the Med in critical condition.

Two others were grazed by bullets and a woman injured her ankle trying to dodge the gunfire.

“Stay in my house, that’s the best place and dive on the floor,” said neighbor Louis Thomas. “Those stray bullets don’t care who it hits.”

Teacher and minister Belva Armour said when she heard the gun shots, “I pray, I pray. That’s it. I believe God covers me.”

Memphis police are now looking for a white Ford Bronco and a burgundy Nissan Maxima in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 528-CASH.
