Two victims, aged 15 and 16, succumbed to their injuries – one of them was pronounced dead at the scene – while another 16-year-old female and a nine-month-old baby boy are recovering in the hospital.

After the shooting, the suspects fled the scene in their Nissan Maxima, which was later recovered by police. No arrests have been made as of Saturday evening.

No clear motives behind the shooting have emerged, and the investigation is still ongoing, police added.

Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call (901) 528-CASH.

The gun rampage was part of a violent shooting spree on Friday that left at least three dead and several injured in Memphis.

Around 5am on Friday, a store clerk was shot multiple times during a robbery at a Valero gas station, just two miles away from the shooting that left the two teenagers dead.

The suspect allegedly went behind the counter at the gas station on Winchester Road and grew increasingly angry with the clerk because he was moving ‘too slow’ when the assailant demanded money from the register.

Police said once the register was opened, the suspect shot the clerk, took the money and ran away.
