Teen in critical condition after shooting outside Memphis club

(WMC-TV) - A teen was shot outside Club Materialistic early Saturday morning.

Investigators said the shooting took place outside Club Materialistic at Jackson Avenue and Peace around 3:45 a.m. Saturday.  Police said when they arrived on the scene, they found a 16-year-old victim sitting inside a car with multiple gunshot wounds.

Witnesses said the teen was inside a white four-door vehicle in the parking lot of the Neighborhood Healing Station Church.

One neighbor who heard the gunshots said the club is a nuisance.

"In my opinion, if they close it, they need to close it and keep it closed because this is not the first time," said neighbor Alice Holmes.  "It's always shooting over there.  Every time they open, there's shooting outside.  Every time."

The church parking lot sits directly across from the club.  Neighbors said Club Materialistic attracts mainly young people who end up across the street after the club closes.

The teen remained in critical condition at the MED Saturday.  Police said the investigation is ongoing.

Police have not released any information on a possible suspect.
