MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A suspected drug deal ended with one man in the hospital in critical condition.

Witnesses on scene said the victim was somehow involved in a drug deal. He tried to drive away in his car, but two teens opened fire on him.

The man was shot, and he crashed his car. First responders took him to the hospital in critical condition.

This all happened Friday morning near Douglass Avenue and Airways Boulevard. That's about half a mile away from the Memphis Fairgrounds and the Liberty Bowl.
