MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police are investigating a triple shooting.
Two people were rushed to the hospital and one person died after shots rang out at the James Lounge on Summer Avenue.
The call first came in as a ‘disturbance’ from inside the building, but the shooting happened outside.
Police have not released any information about the victims or any possible suspects.
The shooting is connected to another crime scene Guernsey and Hudson. But, the details surrounding their connection is limited.
A car accident on Summer and Vandalia sent one woman to Baptist East in critical condition.
Police are still working to determine if the crash was related to the shooting.
This is not the first time the club has made headlines.
They were closed as a public nuisance for about four weeks in 2015, then the judge allowed them to reopen after owners agreed to post signs around the club prohibiting illegal guns and drugs, setting up surveillance cameras inside and outside the club that could be monitored by police, making ID checks of customers and adding licensed security officers.
They had regular compliance court dates until September 2018 when the injunction was finally dissolved.
