MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Two men were shot at a business on Avalon Road and Vollintine Road. Police said the 23-year-old victim has died from the shooting.

The shooting happened at around 7 p.m. Monday. 

"All of a sudden we heard gunfire," one witness said. "We looked at each other at first and then it was like 10 rounds that went off."

The woman didn't want to be identified, but said the shooting came from the neighborhood store The North Memphis Market.

She and her daughter walked outside to see what was happening.

"We saw a lot of young people running from the store. As we got down, I seen a young man come out of the store hopping on one leg," the woman said.

The woman said another man was lying on the ground. 

Police said two people were shot at the store in a well established neighborhood. The shooting appears to have happened inside the store. 

Neighbors in the area said shootings are not unusual.

"This community is trying to have a renaissance, trying to clean up our image here at Vollintine," neighbor Anthony Ivey said. "So I hope this kind of stuff stops."

The two men were taken to Regional Medical Center, where one later died.

The shooter left the scene going northbound on Maury Street.
