MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis police are investigating a shooting on Danville Circle in the Eden Pointe Apartments where a man was killed.

The shooting happened around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday. The victim died on the scene.

Police blocked off the complex for several hours as homicide investigators gathered evidence.

This isn't the first time Eden Pointe has been in the news in recent months.

Just a month ago in August, a man was shot on East Danville Circle and taken to the hospital in non-critical condition.

In September 2015, residents said they heard 30 or 40 gunshots in the apartment complex. Police chased five men through the complex, even driving over grassy areas as they pursued the suspects. Children played at a nearby playground during the shootout.
