Man shot, killed outside warehouse

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man was shot and killed Wednesday morning outside a T-shirt business.

Police rushed to the scene on Knight Road outside Staton Wholesale after 9 a.m. where a man was shot.

When officers arrived, they found a man lying dead next to a red truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Usually industrial parks like this are pretty quiet," said Barry Helveston, who works nearby.

People who work in the industrial park near the shooting said they heard about 10 gunshots.

"Being a truck driver, we're not allowed to carry anything to protect ourselves," Helveston said.  "Especially something like that; it makes me nervous."

How it happened is still under investigation, and the suspect is still on the run.

"It's unnerving, because I come here really early," Helveston said.

Police have not released the victim's name and have not said if the victim worked at the business.

Staton Wholesale closed for the day after the shooting. It's unclear when it will reopen.

If you know anything about this case, you are urged to call Memphis Police Department.
