MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man is recovering after a shooting Sunday in northeast Memphis.

The shooting happened after noon in the 2100 block of Woods Edge Drive in the Tanglewood Apartments off Sycamore View.

Police say one man was shot and transported to the hospital in non-critical condition.

Residents said they heard about 10 shots.

The victim is expected to be OK, but the shooter is still on the run. Police have not identified a suspect.

If you have any information regarding this shooting, please call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.

One woman living in the apartments says she hears shootings at least once a week. She says she constantly fears for the lives of her two children.

“We’ve lived here for seven years and it’s definitely gotten worse,” she said. “I have a conceal/carry permit, as does my husband. So, pretty much anytime we leave the house, we carry with us and I don’t let her {their daughter} come outside and play because there is always something going on over here.”

In the past six  months, police have been called to that area more than 50 times for crimes like breaking and entering, theft, and aggravated assault.
