MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Memphis police were dispatched to the 1800 block of Parnassus Wednesday evening at what they preliminarily called an attempted murder-suicide between two neighbors.

Officers found two shooting victims shortly after 9:20 p.m.

Officers located 61-year-old Robert Lumpkin and a male, 46, lying in the front yard with apparent gunshot wounds.

Police say the victim and the shooter are neighbors.

Mr. Lumpkin was pronounced deceased on the scene while the other victim was taken to The MED in "extremely critical condition."

Mr. Lumpkin reportedly confronted his neighbor due to an alleged affair between Lumpkin's wife and the neighbor, police said. Mr. Lumpkin shot his neighbor several times and then turned the gun on himself.

The second shooting victim was upgraded to critical condition.
