Man shot after fight breaks out at a Krystal drive-thru

Memphis police are searching for a gunman after a drive-through shooting.

The shooting occurred early Friday morning at Krystal restaurant in the 2600 block of Mt. Moriah.

Memphis police hope to make an arrest in this case and bring the suspect to the Criminal Justice Center, but so far they have very little to go on.

Police said two men who did not know each other got into some kind of fight at the drive-through for the restaurant.  They both got exited their cars, and shots were fired.

A 50-year-old man was shot in the stomach.  He is listed in critical condition at the MED.  His name has not been released.

Police are interviewing witnesses, but are still conducting their investigation. Police are looking for a green Chevy Camaro with temporary tags.

None of the employees of the Krystal restaurant would comment on the shooting.
