MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Multiple people were injured in a shooting at a Memphis barber shop just after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Memphis Police Department said four people were shot outside the business, located on Chelsea Avenue near the intersection of North Hollywood Street.

A witness said he saw a group of teens fighting before at least one of them pulled out a gun and fired it. 

Three people were taken to the hospital in non-critical condition. The fourth was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The victims were all men, likely in their late-teens or 20s. 

Jerry Brooks was headed to his mother-in-law's house near Platinum Clippers and saw the group fighting behind the barber shop.

"I seen them scuffling then next thing you know gun come out. Heard about 10 shots I went to cover myself," Brooks said.

One victim was found at the Valero gas station next door, two were in front of the barber shop, and another ran to get help a couple yards away at a wing shop.

"Fight and walk away and you know, it's all good. Leave it alone. Shooting each other is not going to solve anything," Brooks said. "Just if we can get along and stop all the shooting. You know it's ridiculous with all the gunshots and shootings. Everybody just shooting everybody. It's just crazy, out of control."

The suspects responsible for the shooting were possibly occupying a gold or silver SUV, according to MPD.
