MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Four people were shot at Valley Forge Apartments in Memphis on Monday morning.

Memphis police were called to the scene just after 11 a.m.

Officers found four victims. Two men were pronounced dead at the scene.

A man and a woman were also rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Police say the shooting stemmed from a domestic violence situation, but exact details weren’t shared with Action News 5.

The suspect is still on the run but is not considered a significant threat to the public at this time.

A woman who Action News 5 met on the scene said the neighborhood is typically peaceful.

“People who live here have lived here for 20, 30 years,” she said. “This crime is getting crazy.”

The Whitehaven woman, who didn’t want to be identified, said Bluff City crime has gotten out of hand.

“If you were that mad that you think you might shoot somebody, just drive off, walk off, run off, fly off—I don’t care,” she said. “I just wish Memphis would get it together.”

Anyone with information is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH.
