(WMC-TV) -A man died and two others suffered injures after a shooting occurred within steps of a North Memphis church, according to police.

"Responding officers made the scene and found three males had been shot," said Lt. Col. Gloria Bullock.

One of the men was pronounced dead while still seated in a Sedan.

Jacqueline Yancey's mother lives just down the block.

"I see all these police cars like Christmas trees, lit up," she said. "We're like, oh my Lord, what happened here? I mean, the crime is everywhere, and it's sad we have to live in this crime like that. It's really sad."

That is something police are trying to figure out. Action News 5's Chopper 5 captured one man being led to a squad car in handcuffs, but many people said he may have only been a witness.
