1 dead, 1 injured in shooting in Lakeland

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County deputies responded to the scene of a shooting Tuesday evening on Wren Hill Drive in Lakeland to find two victims--one that had been critically injured and the other dead.

Investigators say the shooting occurred in the home around 6:30 p.m.

Neighbors report that the man who lives in the home of the shooting is a retired educator. They describe him as friendly.

Family members were on the scene earlier speaking with investigators.

Preliminary information suggests the shooting was an “isolated incident and possibly domestic in nature," according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office twitter account.

Police say the critically injured victim was taken to the hospital. Investigators have not released any names, but an SCSO spokesperson says more information should be available Wednesday morning.
