MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Memphis police are investigating two shootings that occurred Sunday morning, one of which left a person dead.

The first happened just before 2 a.m. Police say officers responded to a shooting call in the 400 block of E.H. Crump. The victims told police that they were leaving a parking lot when shots were fired at their car.

Police learned that there were four people involved in the shooting. While two of the victims were not hit at all, the other two were taken to the Regional Medical Center for treatment.

When the police arrived at the hospital, they learned that one of the victims had died from their injuries.

The second shooting happened just after 8:30 a.m. in the 2200 block of Eldridge. Police arrived on the scene and discovered a man who had been shot.

The victim told police someone shot him as he was going into Springdale Grocery. He said he then ran down the block and collapsed.

The man was taken to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

Police said the suspect approached officers on the scene and told them the victim tried to rob him, so he shot him in self defense.

Police are investigating, and no charged have been filed at this point.
