MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One man has been detained after a person was shot dead in South Memphis Monday.

The deadly attack happened in the Washington Heights community of South Memphis. Police were called to the shooting on the 600 block of Stephens Place near Mississippi Boulevard around 6:30 p.m.

The shooting victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neighbor Herbert Shabazz calls this a middle-of-the-road issue, saying on one side there are people working to build up this community. While on the other side, you have those working to tear it down.

“It’s usually quiet most of the time. Every now and then we have some drama,” Herbert Shabazz said. “85% of the time it’s really nice.”

Police have not released any more information on the person detained.
