Memphis mass shooting: At least eight people were shot including two men who were killed at an unsanctioned public party in a Memphis city park on Saturday night, police said. The Memphis Police Department initially reported there were 16 people shot but revised the number as the investigation continued, noting in a social media post that the error appeared to have been a result of “several victims being reported multiple times”.

Officers responded at 7:19 p.m. to a reported shooting, Chief Cerelyn Davis said during a news conference at the scene. Two men were pronounced dead at the scene and one person was in critical condition, Davis said.

The shooting occurred at a block party in Orange Mound Park, which Davis said included an estimated 200 to 300 attendees but did not appear to have been issued a city permit. “In light of recent events, we stand together to denounce these senseless acts of violence,” Davis said.

There were no immediate arrests reported.
