MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A shooting victim went to a Memphis fire station for help Tuesday afternoon.

The victim arrived at the fire station at Northaven Drive and Circle Avenue and told firefighters he had been shot in the 5200 block of Breckenwood Drive.

The victim was taken to Regional Medical Center in critical condition with multiple gunshot wounds.

Following the shooting, officials became engaged in a possible standoff situation with a suspect. Law enforcement used a robot to go inside the house and sweep the house to determine if anyone was inside it before sending in officers.

The robot confirmed the house was empty and the Shelby County Sheriff's Office said they are continuing to search for the suspect.
