Man Shot, 11 Cars Struck By Bullets At Hickory Hill Apartment Complex

Memphis, TENN. (localmemphis.com) - A man has been severely injured, and 11 cars were riddled with bullets after a shooting broke out at a party early Sunday morning.

 According to Memphis Police, the shooting happened close to 1:00 a.m. at the Raven Ridge Apartments in Hickory Hill.

MPD painted a chaotic scene following the shooting saying as they responded to the call several cars sped past them and multiple people were running out of the apartment complex.

 "Almost more than 100. It was a lot of shots just repeatedly," said Julius James who lives near the shooting scene, "I was in bed with my child and my girlfriend you know it ain't the first time. This ain't nothing new. I just didn't think too much of it, but I knew somebody had to got hit." 

Police said before the shooting; a man was having a party when a group of people who were not invited walked in. The host told police he didn't know them and forced them out, that's when several gunshots were heard from the parking lot.

"I think it's very sad that to all the kids in the neighborhood have to dodge bullets. It shouldn't have to be this way. We need to put the guns downs," said Darryl Thompson who was visiting his family at the apartment complex.

According to MPD, the same group of people then kicked in the front door to the party and started shooting at the crowd. The suspects ran out of the apartment, broken glass and cars scarred with bullet holes were left behind.

James said the sound of gunfire is normal in the neighborhood, so much so, he was helping his friend move out.

"He just tired of the violence that's all, sick of it going on. We all are," James said as he and other loaded a moving truck.

No one is in police custody after the shooting.
