One person killed in Midtown shooting

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police say one male victim was killed in a shooting Wednesday evening a few blocks east of the Liberty Bowl.

One person was taken into custody, but has since been released. Police say it appears that the suspect and victim know each other.

The shooting was reported to police around 4 p.m. at Josephine and Midland.

Witnesses say  the shooting began with a fight at a nearby store. A car with the windshield shot out could be seen nearby.

"We had a young lady. She was in the car with the young man," a neighbor said. "They took her out. So they won`t let anyone else, family coming up to identify the body they won`t let them by."

She said the victim is a 20-year-old man who went to high school with her niece.
