Police: Gunman randomly firing shots injures one person in southwest Memphis
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man was rushed to the hospital after it looks like someone took aim at his home. Looking at the amount of shots fired, neighbors said it’s a miracle that he’s even alive.
Police said someone sprayed dozens of bullets at a home on Ford Road in southwest Memphis overnight. One of the bullets came flying through a glass window hitting the man inside.
“I figured it was a shoot out,” said neighbor Shone Pondexter.
The gunfire caught neighbors like Pondexter off guard on Friday morning just before 2 a.m.
“It was a bunch of shots. Next thing I know it was blue lights everywhere.”
Whoever was shooting put more than a dozen holes in the frame of the home’s front door, hit the mailbox, and left shattered glass everywhere.
“It was quite a bit of gunfire.”
Pondexter lives two doors down from where the shooting happened. He’s only been living in the neighborhood for one week making the whole thing even more scary for him.
“It was a shocker.”
Looking at the damage and the holes left behind he can’t believe most of the bullets missed the victim.
“All those shots and he only got shot in the hand.”
