MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman was found dead in Cordova overnight Wednesday, officials say.
Homicide detectives were at the scene on Oaken Bucket Drive for several hours after police located a female assault victim around Midnight.
“It was shocking to come outside and see it because this is something we don’t have in this neighborhood often,” one neighbor said.
People who live in the area said they heard several gunshots after 11 p.m. Tuesday. Neighbors say the victim lived in the house for years, and they say they’re heartbroken to learn that one of their very own community members was killed.
“She was very friendly. She used to walk her dogs around. Speak to everybody. Everybody knew her. Very good person at heart,” the neighbor said.
Police say the killing was a domestic incident, and someone was detained.
Neighbors say they heard some sort of argument right before the shooting. Loved ones were too distraught to go on camera but say the two experienced issues in the past.
Friends say before the shooting, the victim told them the man who was detained was behaving oddly. However, no one imagined things would go in this direction.
Police have not released a motive for the shooting.
At this time, no official arrests have been made.
