MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two people are fighting for their lives.

Officers responded around 3:45 p.m. Sunday to the scene in the 3300 block of Castleman Street, which is near Wooddale High School.

There, they found a car that crashed into a tree. The two victims were in the car and were transported to Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

One of the victims told police someone in a car shot at them and then drove away.

A bullet hit the female victim, who was in the passenger seat, police said. The driver was not shot but was hurt in the crash.

"They both looked so lifeless and had blood all over them," said a teen who lives next to the scene. "It was scary and sad. We were just in disbelief."

Officers blocked off three and a half blocks while they collected evidence for several hours.

Police are looking for the suspect.
