MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - One man was killed in a shooting at a Midtown car wash Sunday night, according to Memphis Police Department.

The shooting happened around 6:30 p.m. at the The Car Wash, which is located near the intersection of North Avalon Street and Poplar Avenue.

Deandre Johnson, 28, was taken to Regional Medical Center where he later died as a result of his injuries.

One resident said he comes to The Car Wash because he feels safe.

"This is one of the few that I do trust to come out this late at night," Wali Langford, a car collector, said. "Most of the time I wash it at the house, but when I am out I'm always washing my cars."

Customers like Cynthia Bean, who goes to The Car Wash for ice, believes more can be done to make her feel safe.

"Since they don't have an attendant 24 hours a day, I think that they would probably need to come around maybe every four hours just to do a spot check," Bean said.

Langford says he does a spot check before even pulling up for a wash.

"I look over the situation before I come up, you know? This is Memphis," Langford said.

No arrests have been made at this time. MPD said Johnson may have known the suspect.
