MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Three adults are all recovering Wednesday morning following overnight shootings across the city of Memphis.

The first happened just after midnight at Southern Avenue and Lundee Place in East Memphis.

The two victims told police they were driving when the two suspects, whom they know, walked into the road and shot at them. Both were hit and taken to Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

Police have not arrested anyone yet.

Less than 15 minutes later, officers responded to a shooting outside Ralph's Bar and Grill on Millbranch near Holmes Road.

One victim was taken to the hospital from that scene, also in critical condition.

The victim told police an unknown suspect said he saw him trying to break into his RV in the parking lot, and then the suspect shot him.

Police arrested Herbert Sykes for this shooting. He's charged with attempted first-degree murder and using a firearm in the commission of a felony.

WREG was originally told a juvenile was taken to Le Bonheur Children's hospital after a shooting at the Autumnwood Apartments, but we have since learned the child was not shot.

According to reports, a suspect involved in a domestic dispute opened fire on a car with the child and an adult female were inside.

Somehow the child fell out of the car and was run over.

The child's condition has not been released.

If you can help, call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
