Police were on the scene of a shooting at Lamar and Kyle on Monday afternoon.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police say a man was critically wounded Monday afternoon while he was driving and someone in another car shot him.

It happened at about 2 p.m. A witness told police she observed two vehicles racing west on Barron Avenue. Near Baltimore Street, the black Nissan Maxima pulled up next to the other car and someone inside fired shots at it.

The suspects kept driving, and the victim turned onto the next street, almost losing control of the vehicle, the witness said.

Police found the victim at Lamar Avenue and Kyle Street. They said the victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

A cream-colored Cadillac was seen with multiple bullet holes in the driver side front and rear doors.
