MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person was rushed to the hospital overnight after a shooting at a local motel.
It happened at the Fairview Inn and Suites located in the 3800 block of American Way in Parkway Village around 3 a.m. Monday.
One victim was taken to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
Investigators focused on one of the rooms at the motel and a vehicle parked outside. Our crew spotted at least three evidence markers inside the room and the window to the left of the door was shattered.
Officers were also seen talking to the people in the next room, trying to learn as much as possible about what happened.
Guests WREG’s Melissa Moon spoke to had no idea someone had been shot, but some were made nervous by the news.
“I’ve got to get out of here. I was going to stay but now I’m going to move to another hotel,” said one woman.
The property is surrounded by security fence to keep unwanted guests out. Authorities didn’t say what led up to the shooting or if the victim knew the man and woman taken into custody.
In January 2019, police were called to the same motel after 22-year-old Fernando Medina was shot dead in the parking lot. Dashara Martin was arrested by the U.S. Marshals in February and charged with first-degree murder and first-degree murder in perpetration of robbery.
