MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman’s world was turned upside down in an instant Thursday when she was struck by gunfire while riding in her car. Police don’t know who pulled the trigger or why.
The woman ended up at a business near Lamar and Shelby Drive. An employee inside said the victim’s daughter was driving and came running into the lobby asking for help while on the phone with 911.
The employee said he laid the woman on a couch and took care of her until paramedics arrived. He said she was bleeding from her side, and her car was riddled with bullet holes.
Overhearing the victim’s conversation with police, that same employee said the shooting happened at Hickory Hill and Raines around noon. The gunfire, he said, came from someone in a white sedan, but police don’t know why the shooter opened fire. This leaves some to wonder if it was road rage.
The victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Sadly, the man who helped her said she and her daughter just moved here from Georgia.
No arrests have been made.
