MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman said she was robbed and shot by a man while leaving her southeast Memphis business Thursday morning.
Police responded to the 3800 block of South Mendenhall near Flowering Peach around 4:30 a.m.
The victim told police she was leaving work when she noticed a man in a white pickup following her.
Police said the man got out of his truck, walked up to the woman's Mercedes and fired a shot through the window, hitting the woman.
He grabbed her wallet and she drove to a nearby McDonald's for help. She was taken to Regional One in noncritical condition.
"There is crime all over the city. It isn't surprising where it happens anymore," a McDonald's customer said.
Employees at neighboring businesses say there have been a number of shootings and robberies in the area over the last few months and their not surprised it happened here.
The Memphis Police Department's Crime Tracker shows 163 crimes within a one-mile radius of the McDonald's and where the victim was shot.
Some involved thefts, burglaries, robberies and assaults.
The victim is expected to be okay.
