MEMPHIS, Tenn. — People on one north Memphis street woke up early Tuesday morning to the sound of gunfire, and lots of it.

The shooting happened in the 900 block of Frest Street, near Ayers. No one was hurt, but that doesn’t mean neighbors are scared.

Police marked off shell casings and collected the evidence after the shootings. Neighbors say they first heard gunfire around 9:30 p.m. and again at 2:30 a.m.  The bullets went through homes and cars.

A man who lives in a home that was hit says he’s fortunate no one was hurt. “Thank God, because it could have hit him and killed him.”

Another neighbor says police found shell casings right in front of her house, and many more all over the street. “The last I heard the officers said was 37,” she said. She doesn’t know what the shooting was about, but feels blessed her house wasn’t hit.

So far, police have not released any suspect information. If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at (901)-528-CASH.
