Officer in noncritical condition after shooting

(WMC-TV) - A TACT officer shot in South Memphis is in noncritical condition at The MED. A standoff is still underway between officers and the shooting suspect.

The shooting happened near the intersection of South Parkway and Worthington Street. Following the shooting of the officer, the suspect reportedly ran back inside a house, leading to the barricade situation.

A TACT officer is one that is specially trained to respond to emergency situations.

Action News 5's Jason Miles is on the scene working to learn more about the standoff situation. Nick Kenney is at The MED awaiting a news conference that will be held by MPD Director Toney Armstrong. We will stream that presser live on WMCTV.COM and our mobile apps.
