Shots Fired Call Chaos: Witnesses Describe Car Crash and Reckless Driving at Memphis High School

On Friday afternoon, Memphis Police responded to a shots fired call near Melrose High School in Orange Mound. Although investigators did not find any victims, they discovered another burnout session taking place just feet from the school as students were being dismissed.

Parents reported seeing two cars doing donuts in the street next to the school, with some of the people in the cars leaning out the windows and waving guns around. The cars continued doing donuts until police arrived and chased them.

The cars returned to the school and one crashed into two other cars, including one driven by an elderly woman who was picking up her grandson. The driver and passengers of the crashed car got out and ran away, but one was caught and arrested.

The suspect was a Collierville man with several felony warrants, and officers are still searching for the others involved. Witnesses were shocked that the drivers were bold enough to do this in front of a school and were relieved that no one was seriously injured.

FOX13 reached out to Memphis-Shelby County Schools for comment but has not yet heard back.
