MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Police are investigating an early Sunday morning shooting that happened near a bar.

Police say they responded to the scene at the A-Game Bar and Grill at 6642 Winchester Road, where they found one man on the ground in front of a silver Ford Mustang. He had been shot multiple times, and was pronounced dead.

A second victim arrived at St. Francis Hospital in a private car, in non-critical condition.

Police say the victims got into an argument with two people in a white Chevrolet or GMC SUV at the AutoZone on Winchester and Hickory Hill Roads.

The victims left AutoZone and went to the A-Game in the Mustang, where the other car pulled up next to them and they began to argue again. When the first victim stepped out of the car to confront the passengers in the SUV, the suspects opened fire, striking both victims.

"Oh it was just people everywhere, people everywhere. It was hectic, cars flying, people running it was hectic out here last night," said Travis Walker.

This is the second shooting at the A-Game in less than three weeks. WMC Action News 5 spoke with the owner of the bar, who says that the three people involved in Sunday's incident were not patrons of A-Game.

Police say they are on the lookout for suspects that may be in a white Chevrolet Tahoe, armed with a semi-automatic handgun.
