MEMPHIS, Tenn — A woman was shot at on North Germantown Parkway while sitting in traffic, Memphis police said.
Police responded to an aggravated assault July 27 along North Germantown Parkway and Macon Road in Cordova.
Investigators say the man behind the wheel of a gray 2016 Ford Escape cut the victim off in traffic and shot at her car in broad daylight.
The woman who didn’t want to be identified said the suspect fired a single shot into the street as a result of road rage.
“They were trying to swerve around me and I didn’t allow them to do that. They were trying to swerve through the shoulder lane,” she said. “He shot one round off. I wasn’t scared and I wasn’t upset.”
From there, she said she followed the suspects and his male passenger to the Walgreens parking lot on Macon Road.
“I called them out their names and stuff. That’s just how I felt. They didn’t say anything to me really, they just tried to follow me and I ended up following them. That’s when I was on the phone with dispatch,” she said.
The woman said she snapped a photo of the license plate hoping it would help police catch the suspect.
“To see somebody do something so dumb and think that it was just so cool..it made me upset and it’s like you win dumb prizes doing dumb things,” she said.
Unfortunately, detectives say the license reading 6R9-5T5 did not match the car and was not registered.
Police say the suspect is a thin man with small braids in his early 20s.
Anyone with information about this incident should contact Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.
