MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Shocking video streaming live on Facebook shows shots fired in a crowded downtown parking lot.
It happened around 12:45 a.m. Sunday near Riverside Drive and Beale Street. Police confirmed they are investigating the shooting.
A car in that parking lot was found with windows shot out, but it's unclear if this car was damaged during that Facebook Live shooting. Police are investigating that as a vandalism.
In the video, you can see a two men, one hanging out the back window and one out of the sun roof of the silver car, both firing shots. The person recording the video was inside his condo on Wagner Place watching this all go down.
You can hear over 10 shots being fired. Luckily there are no reports of any injuries.
Just one day ago, police said they've increased patrols in that part of downtown.
Throughout the weekend WREG saw a large police presence including officers on horses and bikes that were also making traffic stops along Riverside Drive.
"I think it’s terrible. Memphis try to do the best as far as law, but it seems like its not getting anywhere," said Memphian Dester Hayes when he saw the video.
The shooting comes on the heels of another in the same area last week. Two people, who are expected to be OK, were shot last Sunday evening in Tom Lee Park.
While the park was flooded with police throughout the Easter weekend, it’s unclear how late the officers made their presence. The video of the shooting was taken about half a block from the park around 12:45 a.m.
"I guess what the worse part is they’re trying to make everything family oriented and that’s what we’re trying to do," said Laverne Hayes.
Shock aside, families we talked to said the police presence makes them feel better and hope something changes in the hearts and minds of those sparking the violence.
"A lot of us still have to live and go on with our lives so hopefully people come to their senses," said Rachel Henry.
It does not appear anyone was injured in the shooting caught on camera.
So far no word on any suspects.
