Overnight violence kills two in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Police in Tennessee say two people have been fatally shot and four others were wounded at a home after an apparent argument while gambling.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office says on its Twitter page that no arrests have been made in the shooting that occurred Saturday night northeast of Memphis.

The sheriff’s office identified the dead as 18-year-old Marcus Conway and 22-year-old Marquese Taylor, both of Memphis. Four others with gunshot wounds were taken to a hospital and their conditions ranged from serious to critical.

According to the sheriff’s office, witnesses told investigators a gambling feud touched off the shooting. Investigators say the victims apparently knew the suspects.
