GREEN HILLS, Tenn. (WSMV) - New video shows the moments a woman crawled to a neighbor’s porch for help after officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department said she was shot while walking in a Green Hills neighborhood.
On Tuesday morning, the victim’s blood, socks and shoes could still be seen at the crime scene. Authorities said she had been shot multiple times in an attempted robbery.
“Terror, absolute terror,” a Green Hills neighbor said.
A neighbor said the shocking experienced left her feeling terrified, “I mean I’ve spent most of the morning just shaking.”
Metro Police said crews were called to the scene at the intersection of Trimble Road and Esteswood Drive just after 11 p.m. on Monday.
“A lot of police presence, just police everywhere,” the neighbor said.
Before police rushed to the scene, investigators said two men in a dark-colored sedan saw a woman walking along Trimble Road and jumped out of their car and attacked her. Police said during the struggle the two men shot the 26-year-old woman multiple times in her arm and leg.
“Someone else from what I heard called 911,” the neighbor said.
What this neighbor didn’t know, is that the woman turned to her for help. Security video shows the woman who was shot crawling to her neighbor’s porch.
“There were police everywhere and when I got up to come to look and got to the front door, there was a person lying on my front porch,” the Green Hills neighbor said.
Crews said the victim was taken to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Neighbors like Allison Robinson, who’ve lived in the area for more than a decade, said they’re now on edge.
“I used to run every morning and to think that this could happen is just shocking,” Robinson said.
Police are still searching for the two men.
“Maybe they’ll be able to find them. I hope they do because they need to be caught and this needs to be stopped,” a neighbor said.
Metro Police are now asking anyone with information on this incident to call their crime stoppers line.
