MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Newly released video from Memphis Police show the moments that gunfire rang out in the Hollywood neighborhood, killing one man and narrowly missing a nine-year-old child, according to police.
Memphis Police said the shooting happened in the 1600 block of Oakwood Street on Friday, July 1.
