MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Fire department officials say a man was hospitalized after a shooting Sunday afternoon near the Memphis airport.

Memphis Police were on the scene at the Bent Tree Apartments in the 3300 block of East Brierpark Drive.

The victim was listed as non-critical, police said. No suspect information was given.

The sound of gunfire is a never-ending nightmare for those living in and visiting the Bent Tree Apartments.

One grandmother, who agreed to speak to WREG only if we protect her identity, said after hearing someone was shot a few yards from her son's apartment that her heart drops every time she gets a call from her baby boy.

"When I see my son call, I'm scared, I'm nervous, I'm praying. Because I know it's a possibility it could be him, it could be one of my grandkids."

In fact, she says one of her nightly prayers is that her four grandchildren make it through the night — especially her granddaughter, who sleeps on a top bunk.
