2 dead in Tipton County triple shooting

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Two men are dead after a triple shooting in Tipton County early Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened in a field at the intersection of Leighs Chapel Road and Turner Field Road after 1 a.m. in Covington.

One victim was rushed to the hospital in Memphis; the other two victims did not survive.

Tuesday afternoon, police identified the victims as 18-year-old Christavian Toomes and 18-year-old Isaiah McCrory.

Police also investigated two separate scenes related to the homicide--on South High Street and South College Street.

Patricia Hanson was outside her home on South College when she heard police.

“It was close to 2:00 in the morning. I heard sirens and then I heard them cut it off,” Hanson said.

Hanson said she saw several police vehicles outside a neighbor’s yard. She said police are often called to the area.

“You think you’re in a safe neighborhood and next thing you know, you hear shots," Hanson said. "And it goes on a lot in this neighborhood. You’d think that it wouldn’t go on in this neighborhood, but it does.”

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating the shooting.

Officials have not a potential suspect at this time.
