(Memphis) A 16-year-old died and a 17-year-old was injured in an ambush shooting Friday afternoon.

Both were apparently sitting in a car at the intersection of Park and Marechalneil when someone walked up and started shooting.

They tried to drive themselves to the MED, but had to stop in a parking lot of a shopping center at 2252 Lamar, near Kerr.

The 16-year-old was taken in critical condition to The MED and was later pronounced dead.

The 17-year-old was taken to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in non-critical condition.

One person was detained at the shopping center; however, MPD says no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
