Memphis police said one person was found shot to death and 10 others were wounded after gunfire erupted at and around a nightclub early Sunday.

Five of the wounded surviving victims remained in critical conditions by midday Sunday, while the other five have been released from the hospital, police said.  

The gunfire stretched to two separate but nearby scenes, which investigators believe to be connected.

Upon arrival, two shooting victims were found and taken to Regional One Hospital in critical condition, the Memphis Police Department said in a preliminary update on Twitter. 

Five additional shooting victims left the scene and arrived by private vehicle in "non-critical condition" at local area hospitals, police said.
