MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A 20 year old is behind bars after allegedly opening fire during a robbery over the weekend.

The incident happened Saturday afternoon in the 5600 block of Myers in Hickory Hill.

Those inside the home told police several individuals jumped out of a dark-colored Audi, burst into their home and tried to rob them. At one point, one of the suspects — identified by police as Terrance Jones — opened fire, striking at least two victims multiple times.

A neighbor was also injured when multiple "projectiles" traveled through a neighbor's wall hitting a man sitting on his couch.

One woman who lives in the neighborhood is on high alert.

"I stay prayed up. You just have to be mindful and watchful."

She says, for the most part, her side of the neighborhood is quiet, but she worries for the people who live on the other end.

Especially the innocent residents.

The suspects in Saturday's shooting got away with at least one weapon.

Police didn't say exactly how many suspects were involved.

However, Jones was charged with multiple counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated assault.

Just two months ago, a man was shot on the next block over.

We talked to a resident off camera who said he felt safe and hasn't been bothered by the crime outside of his front door.
