Bullets fly again near Memphis intersection where two people were killed this week


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police were investigating another shooting Friday near Mendenhall and Knight Arnold. No one was hurt in Friday’s shooting.

However, one of the bullets struck a car parked at a daycare next door while children were inside the daycare. WREG spoke with one woman who rushed to pickup her nephews when she heard the news. She prefers not to be identified.

“Yeah. That’s why I came and got them early today. They got to go,” she said.
