Police say the off-duty officer was also injured, but they did not say if he had been shot. The officer was taken to the hospital in non-critical condition.

People who live in the community told WREG-TV the area is very quiet but over the last seven months, a family moved into the area throwing wild parties which caused people who live in the area to feel uneasy.

“You can’t believe it happened this close to home. We all have to get along,” Kevin Johnson, a resident, said.

At this time, no one has been arrested for this shooting.  Memphis Police say the investigation is ongoing.
