MEMPHIS, Tenn. — In just 24 hours, five people are dead and one is fighting for their life after multiple shootings across the city of Memphis.

Things started at a home on Vayu Court in Frayser.

Memphis Police say Saturday evening shortly before 7, a man was shot and killed after getting into an altercation with another man at a house party.

But, it wasn’t long before police were called to another house party for another deadly shooting. This time in Southwest Memphis.
