    Memphis police tell FOX13 they do not believe the shooting was random. However, it's still unclear if the victims and suspects know each other.

    One victim is in critical condition, the other two are in non-critical condition. Two of them remain there as of Thursday.

    The third person who was transported to the hospital was released and is one of the individuals who was charged with auto theft.

    Parham has active warrants for his arrest for five counts of attempted first-degree murder, according to police. He also has “intentionally eluded law enforcement on multiple occasions and is considered to be armed and dangerous.”

    Parham also has several unrelated outstanding warrants:
