MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A 14-year-old is dead after a stray bullet hit him while he slept in own bed.
Neighbors say it doesn't matter where you live: you can't hide from crime here in Memphis.
Jen Walls lives around the corner from the boy's house on Quince Drive. She says she woke up to the sound of gunshots, and immediately called police.
"Boom boom boom boom. Just like that. Then I thought, oh my god, what now," she said.
Police say a 14-year-old boy was asleep in his bed when one of the bullets hit him. He later died at St. Francis hospital.
"We have a lot of this activity around here. There's always something going on in this neighborhood," Walls said.
Homicide investigators say they have one person in custody, and there's a possible second suspect who knows the family. But as of now, no one has been charged with the killing of an innocent teenage boy.
Walls said her thoughts are with the family who lost their son in this senseless killing. She also said she doesn't let this kind of crime change the way she lives her life.
"I don't worry, you can't worry about those kinds of things," she said.
