Police found a bullet hole in her pants leg. She was taken to Regional One in non-critical condition.

A woman who lived in that apartment told police that Glass, whose last known address was in Ripley, Tennessee, had banged on her patio door. The woman heard what sounded like gunshots and glass breaking as Glass busted through the door, she said.
