MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Police are still searching for two men that shot and killed a 16-year-old on Semmes Street on Saturday.

"These times, young people, they don't give a damn about being shot. They don't care they might shoot you, how they don't have to know you," Charles Reed said.

Reed is fed up with crime after 16-year-old D'Anthony Obee was gunned down just around the corner from his home early Saturday morning.

Teddy bears are on a pole not far from where it happened.

One woman, who did not want to be identified, said Obee was being chased.

"I remember hearing the gunshots near my house--loud, loud. They started to get in the distance."

She said Obee ran to her daughter's front door looking for help.  Neither woman knew him.

"She said she heard them talking to him as they shot him. I'm so glad she didn't open her door," the woman said.

Police said Obee and another teen were approached by two men who wanted to know who they were. The two teens ran, trying to get away. The suspects shot at them, hitting Obee.

D'Anthony Obee was a sophomore at East High School.

A Facebook memorial page filled with comments from people remembering him.

"Whoever they are I hope they get caught. We praying they get caught."

"They need every damn charge that can be stuck on them."

Police have not released any suspect information.
