MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person was shot in Hickory Hill Wednesday morning.
Police responded to a shooting at AutoZone on 5945 Winchester Road near Hickory Hill Road just before 1 a.m., shortly after the store’s midnight closing time.
The male victim was found suffering from gunshot wounds in the parking lot of the business.
An employee told police he saw a car backing in when shortly thereafter, another car pulled in. Within moments, shots were fired.
Surveillance cameras and the watchful eye of the store’s worker could prove beneficial.
Something else the employee saw was the two vehicles leaving this area. He saw one going southbound on Hickory Hill and the other traveling eastbound on Winchester. The final stop for one of the cars, was the hospital as the passenger was shot and critically injured.
The man shot was taken by private vehicle to St. Francis, before being airlifted to Regional One. Police would later talk to the woman who drove the victim to the hospital.
She told investigators they were meeting up with somebody. She says a gunman shot her boyfriend without warning.
No associate at Autozone wanted to talk but told us they were made aware of what happened. If you know anything that could help police with this case, call Crimestoppers at 528-CASH.
