Man injured in shooting at basketball court behind police station

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis police are investigating a shooting at a basketball court Friday night.

The shooting happened around 6:30 p.m. at Halle Park, right behind the Mt. Moriah Police station.

One man was shot and hospitalized in non-critical condition.

The news was very unsettling for people who use the park.

“Honestly I’m a little nervous,” said student Ali Weaver. “My brother plays baseball here all the time. this is their home field for our school so it’s a little nerve-wracking.”

Two other people also needed medical attention - a man hurt while running away, and a pregnant woman who may have been sent into labor.

Police have not released information about a suspect.
