MPD continues to investigate Frayser shootings, neighbors step up to improve area

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police report one man is still in critical condition at Regional Medical Center following a shooting in Frayser Wednesday that hurt five people.

The other four people are no longer in the hospital.

The shooting happened at the Corning Village Apartments near Corning Village and Steele.

The Blight Patrol got to work Thursday to clean up a neglected property next door because of the shooting violence the night before.

“Our children need to know what happened last night is not what’s normal to our community. It’s actually abnormal, but they’ve seen the abnormal so long that it’s become the normal to them,” said Pastor DeAndre Brown, who is with the group.

Neighbors said they do not know what led to the shootings, but one woman that lives at Corning Village Apartments said many people that don’t live there bring trouble.

Resident Akeya Washington said there is no security.

“Majority of the people that’s causing the confusion over here don’t even stay over here. So I, like, what are they going to do about this because it’s more than crazy,” Washington said.

Memphis Police are still investigating the shootings.
