MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person was rushed to the hospital after a shooting in South Memphis Tuesday night.

Police located a 41-year-old woman shot in the abdomen on the 200 block of West Dison Avenue around 9:48 p.m.

The victim’s roommate told WREG that the bullet pierced her back.

She was taken to Regional One in critical condition.

Police are familiar with the home where the shooting happened as detectives reported being called to the house five times Tuesday.

“Somebody walks off and you shoot them in their back,” her roommate said. “He was really trying to kill her. It was like really premeditated.”

She wouldn’t tell us who ‘he’ is and even the victim told police she didn’t know who shot her.

The attack that happened inside the home was further compounded due to the victim being shot on her birthday which could have turned into her day of death.

“It just breaks my little heart because yesterday was her birthday,” the roommate said.

Fortunately, that was not the case.
