Police detain 38, find weapons at Southwest Memphis park

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Officers detained 38 people Thursday after receiving a complaint that about 50 armed teens were gathered in a Southwest Memphis park.

Police responded to O.L. Cash Park at 3:17 p.m. and found a large gathering.

Seven firearms were recovered, police said, though no arrests have been made.

People at the scene said they were shooting a music video.

Claudette Flowers has lived by the park for decades. Her children even grew up playing in it.

"This is a good, good park," said Flowers. "I've been living here since 1971 and never had anything that I've seen happening here."

"It's got me spooked, because now I have to peep and see if anything is going on," said Flowers. "Just the idea of all those blue lights blinding you and stuff, it's terrifying."

Police are continuing to investigate.
