Police sources say all the victims were taken by private vehicle to Baptist East and all are listed in critical condition.

A KWAM News Radio listener said that he was in the emergency room when chaos broke out.

“I was in the emergency room at Baptist Hospital when several males brought those kids in, yelling that they had been shot. Their cloths were covered with blood,” the eyewitness said. “There is a lot of evil in Memphis.”

Meantime, officers located the suspect vehicle in the area and began to pursue. At least one MPD officer wrecked his squad car in the 3500 block of James. The officer was not injured.

KWAM reports that additional officers continued to pursue the suspect vehicle until the suspects crashed. That happened in the area of Mahue Drive and E. Lakeland Drive.

After a brief foot chase, two individuals were detained, police reported.

The cause of the initial shooting is undetermined at this time. The investigation is ongoing.
