MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police are looking for a woman with blonde braids wearing a white hat with hearts on it after a customer was shot inside a business on Summer Avenue earlier this month.
Police said on November 3, the woman tried to steal something from CVS Pharmacy on Union but was caught in the act.
“We had the woman come in and she started loading a cart full of stuff. We called for a security sweep just to try to get her out of the store. She started to head out, called everybody curse words,” said Matthew Wilburn, a CVS employee.
They said she got into a silver Infiniti, and while the driver was pulling off the lot, she stood up through the vehicle’s sunroof and fired several shots into the air.
“Couple of co-workers were up at the front of the building. One of them standing next to the front door saw her lean out and shoot,” said Wilburn.
The shots sent panic through the store.
“Scared. I didn’t want to keep working that day. I ended up going home about two hours early,” he said.
Investigators said 45 minutes later, the same woman tried to shoplift items from the Family Dollar on Summer Avenue.
Police said she got into the same silver Infiniti and this time, a man exited the vehicle, pointed a gun at the entrance where people were standing in line, and shot a man several times.
Police said the silver Infiniti had damage to the right side.
