MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting at a motel in Whitehaven.

Officials said a man was found shot to death at Americas Best Value Inn on Springbrook Avenue near Interstate-55.

A security guard discovered the victim on the second floor Wednesday afternoon at about 1:20 p.m.

The motel is home to many long-term residents who were upset to hear about what happened.

"It's just so sad," said neighbor Antonio Jenkins. "Everything's sad, people losing their lives for no reason. So much jealousy, so much hatred. It's just people doing nothing to nobody."

No suspect information is available at this time.

This isn't the first shooting death at the motel. Several months ago, an employee, who was related to the owners, was shot and killed by a stray bullet.

WMC Action News 5 will provide more details as they become available.
