MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police said a woman and a teen were shot while sitting in a McDonald’s drive-thru Sunday.

Police responded to a shooting at the McDonald’s at 3120 South Third Street just after midnight on Sunday morning. One woman who saw the aftermath said the scene was chaotic.

“It was taped off all the way around, all the way around. They were full of cops up here,” Deborah Brown said.

A man who lives in the area, Luther King Jr., said everywhere you turn there are reminders when crime crosses over into their community, potentially causing a ripple effect.

“It hurts the community, and not only does it help the community,” King Jr. said. “It hurts our values. Nobody wants to come out here, that’s why we’re losing everything.”

At 12:20 am, officers responded to a shooting at 3120 S. Third. Two victims were located; an adult female was transported critical, and a 16-year-old male was non-critical.

The male suspect got out of a silver Infiniti and fired multiple shots at the victims in the drive-thru.
