MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A shooting in front of a fire station in Hickory Hill sent two people to the hospital Monday afternoon.
According to Memphis Police, around 4:39 p.m., officers responded to a fire station on Winchester Road regarding a shooting where a man and woman were found suffering from gunshot wounds.
One of the victims was taken to Regional One Hospital in critical condition. The other victim was taken to St. Francis in non-critical condition.
Officers with flashlights in hand surrounded a white Infiniti SUV that was riddled with bullets. The vehicle stopped across the street from the fire station.
Witnesses told WREG someone crawled out of the vehicle seeking help.
A woman who wishes to remain anonymous was working nearby when she said she heard rapid gunfire.
“There was a whole bunch of cars in the parking lot so we were kind of a little confused. We weren’t sure if the gunshots were what we heard or not,” she said. “I feel like nowhere is safe around Memphis like every day like it get scarier and scarier.”
We counted at least five bullet holes on the passenger side of the vehicle.
A portion of Winchester was blocked for nearly three hours. The scene even forced firefighters to maneuver around the shell casings.
This is still an ongoing investigation, but police say the suspects were in a black Infiniti SUV.
