    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Police are still working to determine what led to the death of a man found inside a North Memphis apartment around 1:30 Sunday morning.

    FOX13 spoke with people in the area who said they have no idea what led to that man’s death.

    Neighbors said they were puzzled when they woke up.

    Memphis squad cars, yellow tape, and a crime scene investigation van left neighbors wanting to know what led to the death of a North Memphis man.

    “Our city’s better than this,” said Jamie Jones who lived in the complex.

    Officers were seen coming in and out of an apartment at University Garden Manor.  

    “It’s real crazy,” said Jeremy Smith.

    Although Jones is still searching for answers, she said recent incidents have her feeling unsettled too.

    “It’s a whole bunch of shootings over here, a whole bunch of deaths over here, a whole bunch of overdoses in this area and it needs to be stopped,” Jones stated.
