MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman is recovering after being shot while answering a knock at the door.

Shantale Grandberry told police she was inside her home in the 3200 block of Lost Oak Place in Hickory Hill when there was a knock at the door. She asked who was there and was told that her car was being towed.

Concerned, Grandberry opened the door and was met by two armed men wearing masks. She yelled for help and that's when the men opened fire, striking her in the leg and calf.

"I looked to the left and saw the one mask and they just started shooting," she said.

Grandberry says when the bullets started flying she closed her door and ran to her bedroom. It wasn't until she saw the blood that she realized she'd been shot.

"It was just burning after. It was stinging," she said.

Two other men — her boyfriend and brother — were also inside the home at the time.

During the investigation, authorities said they identified one of the suspects as 20-year-old Quinton Johnson. He denied having any part in the shooting.

Johnson was also on parole at the time of the incident.

Grandberry just wants to know why they did it. "I'm clueless what it was about. I'm just caught in the middle of it."
