    10 People Shot in 5 Separate Shootings MEMPHIS

    10 People Shot in 5 Separate Shootings

    Posted on: 7:31 pm, February 22, 2014, by Elise Preston

    (Memphis) The weekend is off to a violent start in Memphis. 10 people are recovering from 5 different shootings across the city that took place within hours. So far, everyone survived their injuries. Police donít have any suspects.

    Blaring bright blue lights took over the street on the 3500 block of Voltaire. Thatís where police say someone shot out a car Friday night.

    Bullets hit two men in their twenties. Drive 15 minutes away to North Memphis, around the same time 3 people were shot in two other shootings. One happened on Vollentine, the other on Pearce. Police say the shootings arenít related.


    Pinkie Johnson lives in the neighborhood. She calls the violence ridiculous and says it doesnít make any sense.


    ďYou canít take matters into your hands, thatís not the law,Ē said Johnson.


    7 hours later, violence raged on in North Memphis. A fight broke out at Our Bar in the 1300 block of Jackson early Saturday morning. A man was shot in the elbow, hip and both legs.


    ďItís perplexing to think whatís going on with people, whatís going in their mind. Itís terrible that enjoying yourself turns tragic,Ē said Bessie Bell.


    Bell didnít witness the shooting at the North Memphis nightclub. She was sleeping in her Raleigh home when she heard a different set of gunshots ring out.


    According to detectives, people started flashing gang signs at a party in a Stage Road house. Minutes later, bullets started flying, striking 4 men.

    One of those victims had just enough strength to hobble over to Bellís front door.


    ďHe was trying to get some help. I saw him bending over like he was in a daze or something,Ē said Bell.


    Before she could answer the door, the victimís friends carried him away to the car.


    Bell says sheíll wash off the blood on her doorstep and knob, but wonít ever forget what happened just outside her front door.


    ďItís a quiet and peaceful area, you donít think about something like this,Ē said Bell.


    But with 5 shootings all over Memphis, this weekend violence shows bullets cross area codes.


    Some of the victims have already been released from the hospital.

    Anyone with information on any of the shootings is asked to call Crimestoppers at (901)528-CASH.
