Driver found shot in car at I-240, Millbranch exit


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person was found shot in a car near an interstate exit ramp around 2 a.m. Saturday.

The victim was found in a 2016 Nissan in the grass near the Millbranch Road exit ramp off I-240. Police said there were at least seven bullet holes in the vehicle.

An ambulance rushed the victim to Regional One in critical condition. Police said he was shot in the left leg and left hand.

He told police he didn’t see the shooter or their vehicle and couldn’t provide a description. The victim also said he saw someone run across the exit lane near his vehicle before being picked up by another vehicle farther down 240.

Dispatchers had received an earlier call from an unknown person saying they witnessed a man in a black ski mask hanging out of an SUV and firing shots at a vehicle on the interstate.

A .40-cal. Glock 22 reported stolen out of Hernando, Mississippi was found near the victim’s vehicle by a guardrail, police said.
