Six people, including two children, were shot near Methodist North Hospital early Tuesday morning, the Memphis Police Department said.

When police arrived about a half hour after midnight, all six were transferred to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and Regional One Hospital in critical condition, but MPD says one of the children and one adult are now in non-critical condition.

Police said the shooting appears to have taken place in the New Covington Pike and Austin Peay area.

"Six victims were located, all had reportedly been shot by suspects in a black SUV," MPD said on Twitter.

Three of the people shot were detained for having a stolen car.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
