MEMPHIS, Tenn. —  A busy night for Memphis first responders after four violent attacks left two people dead and several others injured.

In the first case, two men were sent to the hospital following a shooting at South Parkway and Gleason just before 7 p.m. Monday, August 12. Both were critically injured.

Several minutes later, two more people were shot on Brister in the University of Memphis area. In that case one victim died while the other was taken to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

“It’s scary, because one never knows what happens, especially with a lot of shootings going on in the U.S.,” University of Memphis student Kenneth Pasiah said.

Police were then called to Venable near McMurray in the Oakhaven area where they found one person dead. The cause of death has not been determined.

Just after midnight, police said another man was shot near the corner of McCain and Levi. That person was taken to Methodist Hospital.

In each case, police did not release any suspect information.
