Three rushed to hospital in North Memphis triple shooting

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Police Department is investigating a shooting that sent three people to the hospital.

Memphis police say the shooting happened in the 1200 block of Chelsea Avenue early Sunday morning, just after 2:30 a.m.

One of the victims was in critical condition, while the other two were in non-critical condition. All three were taken to Methodist University.

Willie Hunter was in bed when the gunfire erupted on her street. She lives just a few houses down.

"I just prayed. That's all," said Hunter. "Oh lord, shield me, keep me covered with the blood of Jesus."

Hunter tells us that she wasn't scared, because her faith protects her.

"I just trust the lord that nothing is going to happen to me," said Hunter.

While Hunter describes the neighborhood as typically safe - she also doesn't take any chances.

"I keep my doors locked," said Hunter.

No arrests have been made at this time. The victims did not know the suspects who shot them.

WREG will be working to find out more information.
