Update: Police investigate double shooting in South Memphis

Police continue to investigate a double shooting Friday afternoon in South Memphis. Detectives have no idea where the victims were shot or if they shot each other.

Both victims are at the MED.

Police say a fight after school near Whitehaven Middle School lead to the shooting.

The shooting happened on the side of Horn Lake Road, near Levi, and outside a home on Shadowline.

Cars, yellow crime tape, bullet holes and shattered glass show evidence of two shootings.

"I have a 15 and 16-year-old and an 18-year-old. Too much crime going on," says neighbor Retha Mitchell.

Investigators say the 15-year-old was found shot in the head on the side of Horn Lake Road and a 21-year-old was discovered close-by suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Friends and family stopped to try and get more information from police.

"I love my cousin and I don't want nothing to happen to him. I was crying, I didn't know what had happen to my cousin," says Zsetia Piggins.

Officers say other people are involved in this case and they are looking for more people to come forward.

The 15-year-old remains in stable condition and the 21-year-old is in critical condition.
