Teen fatally shot at Memphis party

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Memphis police are investigating the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old male at a party.

Media outlets report the shooting occurred at an apartment complex Saturday night.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Karen Rudolph says an argument ensued after three people were denied entry into the party and the shooting soon began. The suspects fled the scene and no arrests have been made.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Police didn’t immediately release his name.

Memphis has had a record 215 homicides this year, breaking the mark of 213 set in 1993.
