MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person was shot and killed in a Fox Meadows Sunday evening.
The shooting happened in the Crossings apartment complex in the 5900 block of Green Drive at 6 p.m. where they found a man dead in the parking lot.
Neighbors said the victim was shot in the head.
Memphis Police say one person was pronounced dead on the scene.
According to detectives, the victim walked through the complex with the man wearing the “Life is Good” t-shirt. Reports say they were joined by a man wearing a red bandana over his face with a Bass Pro ball cap and a cast on his right arm.
Police say gunshots were heard shortly after and the suspects were seen running from the scene on Hickory Hill Road.
People who live in the apartment complex say they thought the gunshots were fireworks.
“That’s a part of the illusion, the disguise. If you got firecrackers going, of course you can’t tell is it gunfire or that,” one neighbor said.
Memphis Police say this is the 148th homicide so far this year.
Out of that number, 124 are murders.
Police say that compared to this time last year, murders are down by 5%. However, residents say one murder is too many.
Police say there is no suspect information at this time, and the investigation is still ongoing.
The shooting reportedly happened less than half a mile away from a crash that injured two people. It is unknown if the two incidents are related.
