At least three people were shot at a party late Saturday, Memphis Police said.

Officers were called to apartments at 571 East, where they found three gunshot victims: An 18-year-old man in critical condition; and a 24-year-old woman and 20-year-old man, both of whom in noncritical condition.

A fourth person had already been taken to a hospital by private car by the time police arrived.

“The investigation revealed that there was a party being thrown at the location,” police spokesman Louis Brownlee said in an email. “An armed drunk individual confronted several subjects at the party and shots were fired.”

No suspect was in custody by early Sunday.
