One man was killed and three oth­ers in­jured early Sun­day when an un­known num­ber of as­sailants opened fire from a sil­ver SUV fol­low­ing a fight at a Down­town Mem­phis club.

About an hour af­ter mid­night, Mem­phis po­lice of­fi­cers saw and broke up a large fight at The Den, a mu­sic, po­etry and com­edy club in a space for­merly oc­cu­pied by Hat­tiloo The­atre in the 600 block of Madi­son in the Edge Dis­trict. As of­fi­cers dis­persed the crowd, gun­fire erupted, the bul­lets strik­ing and killing a young man at the scene.

Three other peo­ple were shot and trans­ported in non-crit­i­cal con­di­tion, ac­cord­ing to the Mem­phis Po­lice Depart­ment.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.
