MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Memphis police say one of their officers and another person have died from their injuries in a shooting at a hotel in the middle of the city's crowded entertainment district.
Police Director Toney Armstrong says Officer Timothy Warren, a patrol officer with the department since 2003, died at Regional Medical Center.
Warren was among several officers responding to a call at the Doubletree Hotel around 7:00pm Sunday. A civilian victim was also shot and later died in what officials said started as a domestic dispute. A suspect is in custody.
The hotel sits at a busy intersection adjacent to the historic Peabody hotel and the Memphis Redbirds minor-league stadium, where a game was being played and July Fourth fireworks were planned afterward.
