MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police have arrested a 26-year-old woman in connection with a shooting that injured seven people in South Memphis on Saturday.
Olivia Johnson was charged with four counts of aggravated assault, police announced Sunday. Their investigation remains ongoing.
Police responded to the shooting around 6 p.m. at 761 Chestnut St.
Preliminary information was that three people were shot, and police later changed that to five people.
They said about an hour later that seven people were actually injured.
One of the victims was in critical condition, the other six are non-critical. All seven victims have been taken to the hospital, police said.
Police said six of the victims were adults. One victim, who was only grazed by gunfire, is 16 years old.
One female adult suspect is in custody. Police said the shooting seemed to stem from a fight involving multiple people.
Ralph Shipp’s grandkids live in the neighborhood. Something like this happening so close to them terrifies him.
“I feel afraid, afraid for them of course,” Shipp said.
