MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man is in the hospital after a shooting in North Memphis Thursday.

Investigators said just before 4 p.m. Thursday, a man showed up at a fire station on Chelsea with multiple gunshot wounds.

Police said he was shot in the 2400 block of Hubbard Avenue after getting into an argument with some men.

Police said the victim was transported to Regional Medical Center expected to be okay.

There is no information on the suspects, who ran away from the scene.

Neighbors said violence is a serious problem in their neighborhood.

"It's just part of society. I mean there ain't enough jobs, ain't enough going on. What do you expect when we don't have nothing?" said Eric Jones, who lives in the neighborhood.

According to MPD's crime tracking website, 180 crimes reported in the past three months just within a half-mile radius of the crime scene, and they weren't minor crimes. Many were assaults, shootings and robberies.
