MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Police detectives are investigating a shooting at an apartment complex in Fox Meadows.

The shooting happened just after 3:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Eden at Watersedge Apartments on Mendenhall Road south of Mt. Moriah.

"I woke up. Pow, pow, pow. I heard three pops. I hear it all the time so I just laid down and went back to sleep," said one woman who asked not to be identified.

She said her son also heard the shots just feet away and went to check it out. He saw the driver of the PB&J tow truck, 28-year-old Darrell Adams, slumped over the wheel and spoke to him before calling police.

"He said he was bleeding. Blood was all down the side of his face and his shirt was covered with blood."

The driver was able to call 911, but when officers arrived he was already unconscious. They had to break out the passenger side window to get him out. He was taken to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

Residents said the victim usually drives through the apartment complex, but they don't know who shot him.

WREG was told PB&J has a contract to check for parking violations at the complex, but not to do repossessions.

Call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH if you have any information.
