MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police are searching for the gunman responsible for a drive-by shooting that sent two people to the hospital early Thursday.

The shooting happened around 3:15 a.m. outside the Epic nightclub on East Brooks Road between I-55 and Millbranch.

A man and a woman were hit. They were both taken to the Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

    And you people talk about winning a race war….you’d waste 2,000 rounds before you hit someone.

      This may be a crazy revelation to you Dona but this city runs 24 hours a day. You may have heard about a company called Federal Express? They employ 30,000+ people around here and a lot of them are just getting off work at 3:15 in the morning. When you go out for dinner a lot of your servers, cooks, bus boys, hostesses, bar tenders, managers, don’t get off until well after midnight. 3:00 AM is when many establishments close down for the night.

    I sincerely hope that the command staff at the Memphis Police Department has in place a means of counseling the officers making these types of scenes, that are becoming way too frequent, even if by just one..
    I have seen many gunshot wounds in men, women, and children while on the Memphis Police Department. They were all horrific and disturbing no matter how small the weapon, or minor the wound. Bullets literally rip holes in people. They smash through bones. They splatter brains, blood and tissue everywhere. Sometimes the scene is so horrific that rooms had to be literally torn out to clean them up. Fire pumpers had to be called to wash the blood and tissue down the storm drain. To some officers like me who came from medical background families, it was totally unnerving to see. The thought goes through your mind: “Why am I seeing this persons brains, blood, and tissue splattered all over like this?” No answer ever came that made the slightest amount of sense to me.
    The biggest incident that comes to mind is the little 4 year old shot through the chest and literally blown off her front porch, by two men fighting over a $15.00 bag of marijuana. I carried her body to the waiting body removal ambulance and placed “The Velveteen Rabbit” book with her inside the bag. Nothing about this incident made any sense. It never will.

    Again, I hope the command staff has means in place for these officers making these shootings and stabbings. If not, I can assure you there are some of them carrying around the same mental images in their heads that I do, all these many years later. Human beings are not supposed to see other human beings shot, stabbed, and injured over nonsense. Human beings are not supposed to get angry over something minor and shoot, stab, or maim other human beings.
    And whether it’s 3:15 in the morning, or 3:15 in the afternoon, this shouldn’t be happening. If they are black or white people, it should not be happening.
    I pray that this doesn’t have a long term effect on these officers handling these horrific scenes of violence.
    In war, you expect it. At home, it should not be happening for any reason or circumstances.

    Judge Dyer made a very good point I know and understand what he is saying we are hunans not animals though some of us act like animals it is hard to get humans to understand that if they bring harm to another human then they should expect revenge from that persons family henceforth the shooting stabbing and killings come think before you do
