    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A man is dead after an early morning shooting in South Memphis.

    Several streets were blocked in the area as the investigation was underway.

    It happened on the 200 block of Richmond Ave.

    Fredlee Williams Jr. works on the houses on the block. He said he was not shocked to hear about the senseless violence.

    “It’s someone’s mother, someone’s father, brother, sister,” he said.

    He said he was the one who found a woman’s body in October. She was found dead across the street from where the man’s body was found Monday.

    “I looked over to my right and a dead body laying across the street,” Williams said.

    MFD told FOX13 the call came in around 3:30 a.m Monday. CSI investigators were spotted on the scene.

    If you have any information on this case, please call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.
