Woman shot when she walks into apartment

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A Hickory Hill woman is in critical condition after being she shot several times in her home off Ridgeway.

Police say the woman came home to two armed strangers inside her home at The Lakes apartments.

The two men shot her four times in the chest before taking off.

The victim called her brother who called police.

When detectives arrived on scene, they could hear the woman screaming from inside the house.

Despite suffering from several wounds, she was able to explain what happened.

“That hits close to home I ain’t ever heard of anything like that,” said neighbor Terry Tucker.

Tucker and other neighbors say they didn’t hear anything, despite a gun going off several times.

Neighbor Sharon Jones fears the same crime can easily happen again, “I am troubled, I am troubled. I come in late.”

While police were investigating at the woman’s home, several officers raced across the street and began a foot chase with a man nearby.

That man was caught and taken into custody.

Police have not said if that man faces any charges.
