MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person was killed and another critically injured following an overnight shooting.
Police said it happened in the 5500 block of Waterstone Oak Way in Hickory Hill around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 23.
When first responders arrived on the scene they found two people suffering from gunshot wounds. One person was pronounced dead on the scene while the other was taken to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
WREG was told that the suspect was known to the victim and the shooting happened after a disturbance at that location.
Police said this is a homicide investigation.
Nearly a year ago, a man was shot and killed in the same section of the apartments. Neighbors say people need to find a better way to respond to disagreements and put the guns down.
“Just put it down and get along, because we all got to live here,” a neighbor said.
They say they just want to feel safe in their neighborhood and homes.
