MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Memphis Police were called to a community center in North Memphis after shots were reportedly fired.

It happened around 4:30 Wednesday evening at Dave Wells Community Center on Chelsea near Ayers.

Witnesses on the scene said two girls were about to fight when one of the girl's family members pulled up in a car and fired at least four shots out of the passenger window and took off.

There were children nearby when the shooting occurred.

"I consider community centers and parks safe zones, and you shouldn't go over there and start shooting at kids," said an officer on the scene.

Police said they later found the car the shooter was in at a car wash on Jackson near I-40, but the shooter had already been dropped off.

They said they know who the shooter is.
