Two dead, six injured at Memphis Park Party, police say – NBC10 Philadelphia

Eight people were shot, including two men killed Saturday evening at an unsanctioned public party in a Memphis city park, police said.

Memphis police initially reported that 16 people had been shot, but revised the number as the investigation continued, noting in a social media post that the error appeared to be due to “several victims being reported multiple times.” .

Officers responded to a reported shooting at 7:19 p.m., Chief Cerelyn Davis said during a press conference at the scene.

Two men were pronounced dead at the scene and one person was in critical condition, Davis said.

The shooting occurred at a block party in Orange Mound Park, which Davis said had an estimated 200 to 300 attendees, but no city permit appeared to have been issued.

“In light of recent events, we stand together to denounce these senseless acts of violence,” Davis said.

No immediate arrests were reported.
