Cordova bar shooting
On a Sunday morning in Memphis, Tennessee, Johnathan Miller was tragically killed in a shooting at a Cordova shopping center. The shooting took place at Xperience Kitchen & Cocktails, formerly Mugshots Bar & Lounge.
Just after 2 a.m., Memphis Police responded to the call and hurried to the scene on North Germantown Parkway.
They discovered a man with a gunshot wound and rushed him to Regional One hospital, where he was sadly pronounced dead.
The police have not reported any other injuries or identified a reason for the shooting as of yet. At this time, no arrests have been made.
The investigation is still proceeding in order to learn more about this unfortunate tragedy.
Residents in the surrounding area are not surprised by the tragic news.
“These young men out here are getting these switches to these guns, and they’re out of control.” “Police can’t solve the problem because crime is still happening,” claimed a man who asked to remain anonymous.
The proprietor of the business claims that, contrary to what is commonly believed, the incident did not take place in his restaurant. He claims it happened in the parking lot soon after they closed.
The victim may have been the target, according to the owner’s knowledge, he added.
A witness who wished to remain anonymous claimed that the shooting was the result of a fight that broke out inside the lounge.
The man said, “That young man probably came out of the club and he was ambushed.”
