MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two people were rushed to the Regional Medical Center early Monday morning following a shooting in Parkway Village.

Police said three people were stopped at the intersection of Wooddale Avenue and McKenzie Cove around 3 a.m. when someone opened fire on their vehicle. Bullets hit the driver, sending him to the hospital in critical condition.

Several other bullets entered homes nearby. One of them reportedly hit a man who was sleeping in the leg. He was rushed to the hospital but is expected to be okay.

“You know, my cousin was lucky because it was only on his leg.  It wasn’t on another part of his body like his head or something.  Wow. He could be dead or something,” said Lorenzo Vasquez, the cousin of that second victim.

Another homeowner told WREG another bullet came flying into the second floor of their home where a 14- and 22-year-old were also sleeping. They were not hurt.

Authorities said they are now searching for three to four suspects, but were not able to release a description of the suspects or the vehicle they were driving.
