Three Teens Wounded in Random Shooting in Memphis

MEMPHIS, TN - Police in Memphis are searching for a gunman who appeared to randomly fire at teenagers playing in a park, wounding three of them.

A witness said she saw a man pull out two guns and start shooting.

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the back and was taken to Regional Medical Center in extremely critical condition.  The other two, a 13-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl, were taken in non-critical condition to Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center. 

Sean Hardin, who lives near Kansas Park, said a boy banged on his door asking for help, saying his 14-year-old sister had been shot.

Hardin drove up to the park and found the injured teens.
