CORDOVA, Tenn. (FOX13) -

A 19-year-old was found fatally shot in the middle of the street of a Cordova apartment complex Tuesday evening, Shelby County Sheriff's spokesman Chip Washington said.

Witnesses heard a gunshot before 9 p.m. in the Camden Grove Apartments off Houston Levee and Macon Road and went out the look. They found the victim, identified as Montez Jackson, with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Mr. Jackson died at the scene. Washington said it is unclear if the homicide victim lived at the apartment complex.

Witnesses told deputies, who are questioning the victim's friends and acquaintances, they heard a vehicle drive off.

Washington said he considers the apartment complex a quiet neighborhood and this is the first time he's been dispatched to Camden Grove.

If you can assist deputies you are urged to call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH or the Shelby County Sheriff's Detective Unit at 901-222-5600.
