Two teens injured in Collierville shooting

COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. -- Collierville police are investigating a shooting that injured two teenagers.

The shooting happened at the Center Court Apartments in the 200 block of Center Street. Officers responded to the scene at around 7:30 p.m. Saturday night.

"We heard probably six or seven shots. You couldn’t count them. They were too close together," said a neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous.

Police said the officers found a 16-year-old and a 19-year-old with gunshot wounds.

The victims reportedly told police a dark blue or black sedan pulled up in front of them, and a passenger shot at them. Police said one of the victims returned fire at the suspect as the suspect drove away, and the back of the suspect's car may have been shot.

"It was really quick. The shooter ran and got in the car and left," said a neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous. “Police got here really quick. They handled it really well.”

Both victims were taken to the hospital. The 16-year-old victim has since been released from the hospital. The 19-year-old victim is in serious condition but does not have life-threatening injuries.

Neighbors told WREG at least one of them lives in the building.

“We just hope he’s going to be alright.”
