According to police, eight people were shot on Saturday night at a Memphis city park, including two males who were slain at an unofficial public party

Police Chief Cerelyn Davis said that officers went to a shooting report at 7:19 pm. This was during a news conference at the scene.

Two men were declared dead at the place where the accident happened, according to Davis.

Six people who were still alive were taken to nearby hospitals. One of them was in very bad condition at Regional One Health in Memphis, according to the police.

The shooting happened at a party in Orange Mound Park. About 200 to 300 people were there, but it seems like the city did not give permission for the party.

At least two people used guns in the shooting and the police are watching videos to help with the investigation. No one was taken to jail right away.

“Because of what happened recently, we are all saying together that we disagree with these violent acts that don’t make any sense,” said Davis.

The Memphis police first said 16 people were shot, but later said it was fewer because some victims were counted more than once. They said this on social media.
