Two people injured in Lamar Ave. shooting

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- MPD detectives are looking for a suspect following a double shooting in the Airport area overnight.

Police say two shooting victims showed up at a Marathon gas station at Lamar Ave. and Pearson Rd. around 2:45 a.m. Tuesday.

The victims told police that they'd been shot by a man who drove away in a silver, four-door sedan.

The employees at the Marathon gas station on Lamar didn't want to talk on camera , but they say a car pulled into their parking lot with three people inside and two of them had been shot.

Some customers weren't the least bit alarmed that there was a crime scene in the parking lot.

"It's Memphis, every time you turn on the news there is always somebody shooting at somebody," said a customer.

Police say the shooting happened nearby in the 3900 block of American Way and say the suspect fled in a silver Sedan.

We counted at least eight bullet holes in the vehicle that ended up there.

"I heard something happened, so that's why I came by to see what is going on ain't nothing new to me. There is always something going on over here," said a customer.

Both victims were taken to the Regional Medical Center -- but so far, police haven't released any details about how they are doing.

Police are asking anyone with information on this shooting to call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
