Man shot at North Memphis apartment complex where two others shot last week


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man was shot inside the Goodwill Village Apartments Monday evening, the second shooting at the North Memphis apartment complex in a week.

According to police, a man was rushed to the hospital after being shot walking the grounds of the former Goodwill Village Apartments at 1544 Merton.

Six shell casings were located on the street and the victim said he was shot by someone in a red Chevrolet Cruze. Police said the man was conscious and talking when he was taken to a hospital.

The victim identified by his brother as Nicholas Bradshaw.  His brother said Bradshaw was shot three times but is expected to be OK.

“He got shot in the arm hand and the chest, and he’s in the hospital and doing fine,” said Trenton Shaw.

Initial reports indicated the victim was a security guard and that’s what the brother thought too.

WREG’s Melissa Moon learned Patriot Security was handling security at the complex up until Labor Day. That company decided to end their contract saying it just wasn’t worth it for the safety of their security guards.

A new company started covering security Monday evening.

Both companies said the man shot overnight did not work for them. A search of state records showed the victim was denied a security guard license too.

Authorities swarmed the area looking for the shooter, but they don’t know who he is. They’re asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.

Two people were shot dead outside the Goodwill Village Apartments on Labor Day.
