MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Memphis Police responded to two separate deadly incidents Wednesday afternoon: one person was found deceased in a pawn shop, and two people were fatally shot and one critically injured in an apparent murder-suicide at a Binghampton apartment complex.

"We responded to 2399 Lamar, Lamar Jewelry and Pawn, at 11:45 am regarding a Man Down. Officers located a deceased male inside of the business. Homicide investigators are on the scene. The scene is active.

We responded to a shooting at 2925 Mimosa in which 3 people had been shot. Two are deceased. There is no condition on the other. The scene is active."

FOX13 NEWS has crews at both locations.

According to FOX13 News reporter Sarah Bleau at the Lamar Jewelry and Pawn crime scene, there are no witnesses to the homicide. Police are looking at surveillance video from inside the Lamar Jewelry and Pawn for their investigation.

A customer called police when they went to the shop Wednesday morning and tried to get inside the store. It is unclear how long the unidentified victim was dead inside the store.

According to police, the family of the deceased male has been notified.
