MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis Police Department says a child is one of the victims injured in a shooting near downtown Sunday night.

A 17-year-old was pronounced dead on the scene of the shooting on Exchange Avenue. The child, 3 years old, was taken to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in critical condition.

We are waiting for suspect information at this time.

Neighbors not wanting to go on camera did point us to a makeshift memorial that now sits on the scene.

This happened just hours after a prayer summit at the Renasant Convention Center in Downtown Memphis, praying over the city during this violence.

This was just one of 10 separate, violent incidents that took place in Memphis between Friday and Sunday night, resulting in six people dead and eight people injured and transported to various Memphis hospitals.
