MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A person was shot at an apartment complex in the Medical District on Wednesday morning, and police do not know the identity of the shooter.

Memphis Police said the shooting happened around 8 a.m. at the Midtown Apartments in the 1000 block of Poplar Avenue.

One person was shot and taken to the hospital in non-critical condition.

The suspect is a man, but police have no additional suspect information available.

"My son woke me up to tell me Power Patrol and The Marshals were out here," concerned resident Mary Bolden said. "I'm slick scared to go outside myself, but I have to protect them though. I want to know what's going on."

Bolden says she's still surprised to hear someone was shot at the apartment complex.

"They just reopened these apartments in January. It's been quiet and laid back."

Although  it may be quiet for some, the neighborhood has had its share of crime. Records show police have been called out to the area more than 200 times.
