MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC) – Police found four people with gunshot wounds in a residential area near Whitehaven on Monday night.

WMC Action News 5's Chopper 5 was over the scene where there was a large police presence around 9:30 p.m. on Monday.

At least 15 cruisers lined the street near Ford Road and Melton Avenue as officers looked for the person who pulled the trigger.

The victims told police they were walking in the area, heard gunshots and were hit.

The suspect is still on the run and investigators may not have much to go on. It has neighbors like Alfred Cooks worried about the cycle of crime in his community and the impact on the people he knows.

"It's getting worse. It's not getting better. It's getting worse," said Cooks.

Police say three men were sent to Regional Medical Center in non-critical condition and one younger man was taken to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in non-critical condition.

There is no suspect description. If you have any information about this shooting, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH or go to the Crime Stoppers website here: http://memphis.crimestoppersweb.com/
