Teenager shot in leg on Vollintine

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A 17-year-old was shot in the leg while walking home from school in North Memphis on Tuesday afternoon.

The shooting reportedly happened in the 1400 block of Vollintine around 4:45.

The teen was taken to Lebonheur Children’s Hospital in non-critical condition.

The suspect fled in a gray four-door sedan.

“It’s painful,” said one neighbor. “It’s very dangerous out here, you can lose your life just over anything.”

One parent who didn’t want to be identified, says the echoing sound of gunfire never ends in her North Memphis neighborhood.
