It took less than three weeks for the new Topgolf Memphis location to have its first shots-fired incident.
Just days after an embarrassing fight video at the new Topgolf Memphis turned up on the Internet comes news that there was a “shootout” in the parking lot at the crown jewel driving range that the city claimed was going to be a phenomenal addition to the city.
According to police, bullet holes were left in at least one car after the Wednesday night shootout where 14 .40 caliber shell casings were found scattered across the parking lot. Investigators believe someone started shooting out of a Nissan Altima. A White Mercedes and a Jeep were targeted, according to police, who say there was return fire from the Mercedes before all cars involved took off out of the parking lot.
A 2017 Silverado truck was hit by multiple rounds.
Topgolf said in a statement that they will add even more security to keep this place from turning into a lost cause.
Locals knew it was just a matter of time before the inevitable happened in a city where crime has exploded.
