MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis police are responding to a shooting directly across from the EH Crump police precinct.

Police said one man was shot at 946 E.H. Crump, which is Burks Barbershop.

Officers in the parking lot of the precinct said they actually heard the shots.

Police said the shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. outside the Burks Barber Shop, which shares a building with several other businesses.

Witnesses say one victim appeared to be shot in the leg, while a second victim may have walked away from the scene.

"I was getting a haircut and we heard some shooting, and they told us to get out of the chair and just lay down- and we just laid down," said witness Donnie Wilkins.

Wilkins was getting a haircut when shots rang out.

"I'm a Vietnam veteran and stuff like this is crazy. It's just crazy," said witness George Nickson.

Right now, police have not released any possible suspect information. One witness said he heard the victim say he knew who shot him.
