MEMPHIS, TN ( - Memphis police have arrested a suspect in a shooting at the Westwood Community Center that injured two teens.

The shooting occurred on Friday, January 25 after a fight at Westwood High School carried over to the community center. Four people were in the center's parking lot when they were approached by three others and a fight ensued. One person pulled out a gun and fired at the group of four, hitting two of them.

A 15-year-old male victim was shot in the stomach and was transported to The MED in critical condition. A 17-year-old victim was located at a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound to his chest and back and airlifted to The MED in critical condition; both victims were later upgraded to non-critical.

The suspect, known to the victims only as 'Nu Nu,' was picked out from a photo line-up and identified as 18-year-old Phillip Lipsey. He was arrested and charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault and remains at the Shelby County Jail on a $350,000 bond.
