Two found dead inside Memphis motel

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Authorities are investigating after two people were found dead inside a northeast Memphis motel.

According to police, a man and a woman were both shot dead inside the Crossland Economy Studios in the 5800 block of Shelby Oaks Drive.

Katie Dupre was staying two floors down from the crime scene when she saw police towing away a silver Infiniti that might belong to one of the victims.

"It's really sad, it's really sad. You know, there shouldn't be crime in Memphis."

But there is crime, and quite frequently. Just usually not here — not violent crime, long-time neighbors insist.

"It's surprising. It's just very surprising to me right now to see this here or to even know of this case, something like this even happening over here."

No one has been taken into custody and no suspect information is available.

If you can help, call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
