MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A fourth juvenile has been shot this week in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Commercial Appeal reported the 16-year-old male was taken to the hospital in critical condition early Friday morning after police responded to the shooting.

Three other children have died this week from gunshot wounds. The first shooting occurred Sunday, when 10-year-old Jadon Knox was shot while playing outside of his home. On Monday, 6-year-old Ashlynn Luckett and 16-year-old Lequan Boyd were shot inside a residence.

Police said preliminary information on Friday's shooting indicates two suspects fired at the victim from a silver Chevrolet Camero and a black truck. No arrests have been made.
