MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Four people were injured outside a casino after a shooting early Sunday morning, the Tunica County Sheriff’s Office said.

Tunica deputies received a 911 call from one of the victims saying that she and several people she was with had been shot. When deputies arrived on the scene, they found four people who had received multiple gunshot wounds.

A witness told authorities that a white Infiniti with MS tag CONILOU was last seen in the front lot of the Gold Strike Casino. Deputies said they later found out that tags had been stolen.

Tunica Sheriff’s Office said the suspects inside the white Infiniti appeared to spot the victims walking to the casino then fired several shots and fled the scene.

All of the victims were taken to Regional One Hospital for treatment. Three of the victims have been released and one remains in the hospital.

Kelvin Bell works at a convenience store more than a mile from Gold Strike Casino. His heart is heavy after learning a young lady, who’s a close friend, was one of the victims hit by gunfire over the weekend.

“She was actually injured in the leg. Last time I heard she was in a lot of pain,” said Bell. “They rushed her to Baptist Desoto but they had to take her to the med, but she is at home now and she’s doing a little better but she’s still in a lot of pain.”

News of the shooting outside the popular gaming destination raised concerns for some patrons like Bessie Patterson and Van Davis who said they usually feel safe at the property.

“Almost safer than I do going to the supermarket in Memphis cause at least they have adequate security here in my opinion,” Patterson said.

“I think it’s pretty tight. There’s a lot of security guards walking around. So, I don’t know. Apparently it wasn’t tight enough that time,” Davis said.

But all Kelvin Bell can focus on now is his friend’s recovery.

“I think she’s going to be okay. Right now, we just praying and taking it one day at a time,” he said.

When we asked Gold Strike about the shooting, they provided a brief statement saying, “The safety of our team members and guests is our top priority. We are currently working with the Tunica County Sheriff’s Office as this is an open investigation.”
