MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Police are trying to connect the dots between three different crime scenes in Westwood.

Just before 1 a.m., officers went to Ford Road, where they found a 29-year-old shooting victim and his car. Officers said the shooting happened around the corner on Bluebell Cove.

Witnesses on Bluebell Cove said they heard several gunshots and saw four men run away, then heard a car speed off.

Right behind Bluebell Cove, on Western Park Drive, a police cruiser crashed. Police said the officer lost control of his car while responding to a non-emergency shots fired call. He was issued a citation for failure to maintain control.

Police said all three scenes are connected.

The victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition where he later died.

No suspects appear to be in custody in connection with this shooting.
