MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man was shot and killed inside an apartment complex in Cordova early Friday, police say.
The shooting happened just after 1 a.m. at the View at Shelby Farms on the 300 block of Carriage Court near Germantown Parkway.
The victim was taken to Regional One where he later died.
Some residents at the View at Shelby Farms apartments spent their Friday morning talking to Memphis Police officers. They say they weren’t allowed to go into their apartments because it was a part of a homicide investigation.
“My roommate was leaving out at about 3 a.m. this morning, and the police wouldn’t even let her leave,” Jacob Mote said.
Residents say the shooting took place in apartment 204, located in the front of the apartment complex. However, according to neighbors, the unit is vacant.
Those living nearby say they heard a commotion overnight, but they thought the gunshots were fireworks. One woman who didn’t want to go on camera says one of the bullets landed in her home.
It’s believed the victim ran from the apartment unit to the other side of the complex, where he collapsed.
“It’s frightening,” Mote said. “It’s not settling at all.”
No arrests have been made. This is an ongoing investigation.
