MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Police are investigating a deadly quadruple shooting in north Memphis Wednesday afternoon.

It happened in broad daylight in the middle of a North Memphis neighborhood. It appears the shots that killed one person and injured three other people came from a couple of directions.

Right now police are running down leads, looking at evidence trying to come up with who did this and why.

Police say it started at Olympic and Keel. Responding officers found three victims a block over on Montgomery. A fourth was located nearby.

One victim died at the scene. The other three went to the hospital in critical condition.

Residents who did not want to talk on camera said it is not surprising to hear gunshots, but four people shot at once is shocking and surprising.

At this point, police have not released any information about the people who were shot or a motive for the shootings.

Police say right now they have no information about the suspects. They’re asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
