Two people shot at party just south of Goodman and Malone

Posted: Updated:
(WMC-TV) - One Southaven party took a turn Saturday night when someone pulled out a gun. Now, a normally quiet community is wondering why it happened in the first place.

"I was just watching a movie and then all of a sudden I hear a few shots fired and I thought it was fireworks at first. Then I was like wait it's not fireworks" stated resident Cheyendric Rainey.

The shooting happened around 11 p.m. Saturday at the Southaven Tennis Center on Tchulahoma Road, south of Goodman Road.

Resident Shemekia Hill had just gotten off work to find "everybody running and racing to their cars".

According to police, someone rented out the facility. However, when police arrived to clear out the party, shots were fired in the air. Those shots ended up hitting two people, one in the leg and the other in the rear.

One of the victims was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto. The second victim was taken to The MED.
