Police: 2 dead, 1 injured in Memphis shooting

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis police are investigating an early morning shooting that left two people dead and a third in critical condition.

Detective Monique Y. Martin said in a released statement police were called to a shooting at an apartment building early Tuesday morning.

As police set up a perimeter surrounding the apartment, an 11-year-old juvenile, who was not harmed, and a male in his 20s, who is currently in critical condition at the hospital, ran out.

Police found a 39-year-old female victim dead inside the apartment. Martin said a 46-year-old man who is believed to be the shooter was transported to the hospital where he later died.

Police have not identified any of the victims or the suspect, pending further examination by the medical examiner.
