MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person is dead and another injured following a shooting at Villas at Cordova Apartments on Sunday.
According to the Memphis Police Department, at 11:10 a.m., officers responded to a shooting call in the 8400 block of Prestine Loop.
Witnesses tell WREG that dozens of shots were fired, sounding similar to a transformer exploding. The gunshots forced some residents to take cover inside their homes and others to hide, not knowing when it would stop.
One victim was deceased on the scene. The other victim was taken to Regional One Health in non-critical condition and is expected to survive, police say.
Memphis Police told WREG that no one is in custody for the shooting at this time, leaving residents concerned.
“It could have been me that was shot. It’s children that play out here. My neighbor walking her dog, you walking your dog and going to the trash, you pulling in and out– any of us could have got caught up in this nonsense,” said a resident.
Police say it is undetermined if the suspect and victim know each other at this time.
